Give the Gift of Scientific Curiosity for Generations to Come
A gift to The Franklin Institute that is part of a comprehensive estate plan provides a thoughtful way of fulfilling a lifetime of support to The Franklin Institute and allows a donor to craft a significant legacy gift that may not have been possible at an earlier stage of life. Many deferred gift arrangements offer certain tax benefits to the donor and to his or her heirs and can also provide advantages such as lifetime income to the donor or other beneficiaries. Members of The Benjamin Franklin Legacy Society are those individuals who have made provision in their wills or other estate plans to benefit the Institute and who have informed the Institute’s development department of this commitment.
