Leaving a Legacy that Supports the Extraordinary

The AIChE Legacy Society is an elite group of planned giving donors who are Forever Generous. The group’s philanthropic vision is advancing programs for the future with legacy gifts made today.

Future generations of chemical engineers will benefit from the forethought thanks to the growing membership of the Legacy Society. Formed in 2007, through the efforts of then-Trustees, Glenn Taylor and Stan Proctor, who wanted to provide our community with an opportunity to include AIChE in their long-term estate plans, ensuring that their philanthropic impact would continue.

Over this past year, we were saddened by the passing of our dedicated leaders, Peter Lederman and Stan Proctor, both who shared a passion for the Legacy Society.

There's no doubt that their philanthropic legacy will open the doors of opportunity to all who aspire to be a chemical engineer, further advancing our shared vision for a safer, diverse and inclusive profession.

Many AIChE members have included a bequest in their wills. Some have named AIChE and its Foundation as beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan, or charitable remainder trust. August is national “Make a Will” month. This annual reminder provides us with an opportunity to consider our legacy at AIChE and support future generations.

If you decide to name AIChE and its Foundation as a beneficiary, we hope you will share the good news with us. If you would like to learn more about how you can sustain your legacy into the future, please contact Natalie Krauser at natak@aiche.org.
