In addition to a gift in your will,  you can join the legacy society with a gift from your IRA or 401(k) plan, a life-income gift such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, or another form of planned gift.

  • Recognition (if you choose) onscreen in The Benjamin Franklin National Memorial and in the Institute’s Annual Report.
  • Opportunity to engage in a special Franklin Institute experience, such as a behind-the-scenes tour.
