The Cullum Society was established to recognize special benefactors who support the future of West Point and the Long Gray Line through bequests and other planned gift vehicles. It is named in honor of Brevet General George Washington Cullum, class of 1833, who has the distinction of making the first planned gift to West Point. This gift led to the construction of Memorial Hall (later renamed Cullum Hall in his honor), instituted the Cullum number system with the Register of Graduates, and helped finance the early years of the Association of Graduates. General Cullum’s leadership, his love for West Point, and his desire to keep the bonds between graduates strong make it an honor for us to have a society bearing his name.

Since its founding, the Cullum Society counts more than 600 members who have followed General Cullum’s example and have made provisions worth $25,000 or more in their estate plans. General Cullum’s legacy continues through the generosity of individuals today, whose commitments and vision ensure West Point’s excellence and strengthen the Long Gray Line. Planned gifts are the ultimate expression of confidence for the future and gratitude for those who came before us. We would be honored to recognize you with membership to this distinguished society.
