The Robert H. Flarsheim Society honors alumni and others who include UMKC in their estate plans or planned gift arrangements. These legacy gifts allow us to continually build a better School of Education and give future alumni the opportunity to positively influence children and families in our communities for years to come.

We are thankful for your contributions and your support of the School of Education!

If you have already included the School of Education in your will or other planned gift arrangement and your name is not listed, please let us know so we can recognize your generosity during your lifetime and help ensure that your legacy will be used as you intend it.  To be listed as a Flarsheim Society member or for more information about making a planned gift for the benefit of deserving SOE students, please contact Shelly Doucet at 816-235-6025 or
