The Legacy Society: A Lasting Impact With a Planned Gift

The Legacy Society is a group of loyal donors who wish to have an enduring impact by ensuring the National Center for Science Education continues to fulfill its mission to promote and defend accurate and effective science education. 

Benefits of the Legacy Society 

A planned gift to NCSE will be a reflection of your values by ensuring generations to come will learn the power and joy of scientific discovery as they are taught accurate science by confident teachers. Your estate will receive a charitable deduction for the full gift amount so your heirs will not pay estate tax on those assets.

Join the Legacy Society 

You will become a member of the Legacy Society when you inform NCSE of your legacy gift by submitting the confidential Legacy Society enrollment form by mail or email.

The agreement is non-binding and does not constitute a legal promise of any future donation to NCSE. The simplest way to make a planned gift is to indicate a bequest in a will or trust or through a charitable designation naming NCSE as a recipient.
