Platt D. Walker Society

The Platt D. Walker Society, established in 1996 by the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation, Inc., recognizes those individuals who have made a planned gift to support the NCBA Foundation. Members or friends who provide written notification of their gift to the Foundation become a member of the Society.

Planned gifts that qualify a donor for membership in the Society include a testamentary bequest, a charitable trust, a gift of life insurance, a retirement plan beneficiary or other deferred gifts. The Society will help ensure that the Foundation has the financial resources to fund excellent programs to serve the profession and the people of North Carolina in the future.

The Society honors the name of Platt D. Walker, who was elected the first president of the North Carolina Bar Association in 1899. A Wilmington native, Walker practiced law in Rockingham and Charlotte before serving on the N.C. Supreme Court from 1903 until his death in 1923.

The story behind each Platt Walker Society member is special and unique. Each gift, like each donor, holds a special place in the legacy of the North Carolina Bar Association, the NCBA Foundation, and the legal profession at large.
