Our Legacy Society recognizes individuals and couples who plan to make future gifts through their estates to support AASLH’s work. For more than eighty years AASLH has helped the history community to thrive, and, with your help, this will be our mission long into the future. A planned gift today ensures the legacy of our members’ efforts to advance the history field.
Legacy gifts are a crucial part of AASLH’s new five-year campaign to help small and large history organizations prepare to take full advantage of the U.S. Semiquincentennial, and to use the buildup to this significant anniversary to emphasize inclusive and relevant work by history organizations. AASLH’s campaign will enable it to help organizations across the country do more inclusive history, foster critical thinking, and be more central to important conversations in their communities. Legacy Society pledges will guarantee this vital work continues long after the 250th in 2026.
We are grateful to the donors who have already joined the Legacy Society and invite you to consider making a commitment today.
You may remember AASLH in your will:
- by designating AASLH as beneficiary of your will or trust;
- by designating AASLH as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy;
- through the gift of a pension, IRA or other retirement plan proceeds;
- by remembering others through memorial gifts; and
- through the gift of securities and real estate.
Estate planning contributions are deposited into AASLH’s Endowment Fund unless otherwise stated by the donor. If you are interested in speaking with someone at AASLH about estate planning for AASLH, please contact John Dichtl, President & CEO or call 615-320-3203.
