The Legacy Society

Making a lasting and significant contribution to the American Air Museum in Britain isn't just for the wealthy. Our donors come from all walks of life and are leaving charitable gifts in their wills. In doing so, they are making a difference to the world they will leave behind.

You can provide for the American Air Museum's future by placing a provision in your will - making a bequest.

Bequests are:

Easy - Making a bequest is as simple as inserting a few sentences into your will. Such as, "I give and bequeath the amount of $/£___ to the American Air Museum" or "I give and bequeath __% of the total value of my estate to the American Air Museum in Britain."

Versatile -  A bequest may provide for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or specific assets, property, life insurance or part of your retirement portfolio.

Tax-wise -  Making a bequest to the American Air Museum has valuable tax benefits. The federal tax code provides for various planned gift instruments, each of which can substantially and favorably affect a donor's present and future income and estate taxes.

To recognize and honor those who, through their thoughtfulness and generosity, have made a Legacy Gift to the museum – a will provision or other form of a planned gift – the American Air Museum has established the Legacy Society.

Members of the Legacy Society will receive:

  • A Legacy Society membership certificate
  • A personal acknowledgement, signed by the museum's Royal Patron, HRH The Duke of Kent
  • A commemorative Legacy Society pin
  • Legacy Society members may be recognized on the Wall of Honor in the Museum

By making a bequest today, you will be helping to ensure the American Air Museum's future.
