Mary Jane Bumby ’52 of Green Lake, Wisconsin, has been a consistent supporter of Ripon College for 66 years. After a career in education, she continues to give back to the community as a volunteer for Wisconsin’s Citizen Lake Monitoring Network. Here, she measures Green Lake’s transparency and dissolved oxygen content in fall 2018.
Partners in the Legacy was established in 1995 to recognize alumni and friends whose concern for the long-term future of Ripon College is manifested through making estate plans which include the College.
Estate gifts move the College toward greater fiscal stability through endowments and other gifts that estate plans provide. These individuals have made their commitment to enhancing Ripon’s outstanding liberal arts education experience for future generations of Ripon College students.
The more than 500 individuals listed here have remembered the College in the form of a bequest or a planned gift and have a special place in the College’s history. They also have endowed the College in specific areas, creating a personal legacy and a permanent record of their affection for Ripon. We are grateful for the far-sighted planning by such dedicated alumni and friends.
