Clairvaux Society

Established in 2010 and named after St. Bernard of Clairvaux, the famous eleventh-century French abbot and doctor of the Church, the Clairvaux Society honors our donors of any age who remember St. Bernard through wills, planned gifts, and estate plans of any size.  Gifts generated through the Clairvaux Society are maintained in an endowment which makes possible the work of the monks and our continued mission to serve God and His people.


Donors have the opportunity to approach planned giving in a variety of ways that provide benefits to St. Bernard as well as your estate and family. Only the proceeds of the endowment are utilized for the needs of St. Bernard Abbey and Preparatory School.

Members of the Society are invited to St. Bernard annually to attend the Clairvaux Society Members Dinner at which new members that have joined the Society are inducted. This annual celebration gives the St. Bernard community to opportunity to appropriately honor and thank Society members for their visionary leadership, philanthropy, and generosity to St. Bernard.
