Estate Gifts (Your Legacy)

Leave your legacy – include The Planetary Society in your will or living trust.

A gift in your will – of specified amounts of cash, securities, life insurance, real estate, or other property – provides a welcome and much-needed gift to the Society, and may also enable you to retain current assets and save on estate taxes later.  Gifts of real estate may provide you with substantial income and capital gains tax benefits.

Planned gifts are enduring gifts.  They can endow projects, operations, and grant and scholarship programs, or provide crucial funds for unanticipated initiatives.  Your memory and legacy are celebrated with your gift to the future.


Please let us know if you have included The Planetary Society in your estate plans.  We would like to thank you and include you as a Member of a group of very special friends to whom we periodically send news releases about the Society’s plans and activities, as well as invitations to special events.
