The 1848 Society recognizes all individuals who provide for AAAS through their wills or other charitable plans. Planned giving opportunities  help donors prepare for their own future and the future of science at its intersection with society. They are often among the most significant contributions received by AAAS, providing broad funding for our mission or targeted support for particular programs.
Members of the 1848 Society demonstrate strong vision and a deep commitment to AAAS. With your permission, we will recognize this commitment by highlighting you among 1848 Society members on our website and in our annual report. And we will ensure your continued connection to AAAS by providing updates about our activities and invitations to AAAS events and activities.
As you consider making a gift to AAAS, please involve our Development Office  so we can acknowledge and recognize your support. Inquiries are treated in strict confidence, and there is never any obligation when seeking information. We also recommend working with a knowledgeable advisor such as an attorney, financial planner, or CPA to help structure the gift that best suits your needs.
