About the H.J. Long Society

H.J. Long was the fifth president of Greenville College. He served from 1936 to 1962, the longest tenure of any president. After his inauguration, Long instituted the concept of Living Endowment. This plan created a constituent base of committed supporters that made annual gifts to the College. Today, the Living Endowment lives on in what is currently known as the Annual Fund.

It is with great appreciation that we recognize those individuals, who with H.J. Long, share his vision to commit to financially supporting Greenville College through a lifetime of giving.
