The "1848 Society" recognizes all individuals who provide for AAAS through their wills or other charitable plans. Often these contributions help endow fellowships, provide for programmatic support, and advance AAAS's mission to serve as the voice of the scientific community.
1848 Society members have demonstrated a vision and a commitment to AAAS through charitable gift plans. Thanks to members, AAAS continues to improve its programs and activities. AAAS is honored that these donors have elevated AAAS to the level of family through inclusion in their wills or estate plans.
The "1848 Society" recognizes each member either by name or anonymously. Anonymous recognition protects an individual's privacy wishes. Members receive a seasonal newsletter that features articles on AAAS and financial planning tips. In addition, 1848 Society members are invited to national AAAS events and activities.
As you consider making a gift to AAAS, we hope that you will involve our Development Office as so we can acknowledge and recognize your support. Inquiries are treated in strict confidence, and there is never any obligation when seeking information. AAAS always encourages potential contributors to review these matters with professional advisors.
We offer information on a variety of charitable plans you may consider for AAAS (see Planned Gifts).
