The Clairvaux Society Foundation

The St. Bernard Clairvaux Society Foundation is one of the most prestigious organizations of St. Bernard Abbey and St. Bernard Preparatory School. Established in 2010, the Clairvaux Society pays tribute to our donors who remember St. Bernard through wills, planned gifts and estate plans.


Established as a 501(c)3 under the Internal Revenue Code, donations made to the Clairvaux Society are tax deductible. Funds generated through the Clairvaux Society are and will be maintained in an endowment. Only the proceeds of the endowment will be utilized for the needs of St. Bernard Abbey and School.


Members of the Society are invited annually to attend the “Members Dinner” for induction of new members who have joined the Society. This annual meeting gives the St. Bernard community to opportunity to appropriately honor and thank the members of the Society for their philanthropy and generosity to St. Bernard through their planned gifts.


The Society is managed by Fr. Marcus Voss, the Director of Development for St. Bernard Abbey and School. Individuals or organizations that wish to become members are asked to contact him at or at 1600 St. Bernard Drive SE, Cullman, AL 35055.
