The Legacy Society

More than 40 years ago, Arizona Science Center was founded by 65 notable Phoenix leaders who believed that science education was the most important cornerstone for a prosperous Arizona. Those forward-thinking individuals hardly imagined that a tiny downtown storefront in 1983 would evolve into one of our state’s most important educational assets, impacting over 500,000 students, teachers and families annually.
 
Many of our original founders still have big plans for the future of Arizona Science Center! Through some simple estate planning, they are ensuring that future generations will always be able to explore the world of science. We are asking you to join them by making a planned gift that best fits your individual situation. 
 
When you make a planned gift, you will become part of our Legacy Society. Society members gather once a year for a personal update from our President & CEO and Board Chair ?for an insider’s view of what to expect at the Center in the coming year.  
 
To be recognized as a member of the Legacy Society, all we ask is that you inform us that you have made a planned gift.  Estate details are never made public and Society membership is not conditional on the type of gift or the actual estate arrangements.
 
Each year, there are many changes in the tax laws that impact each of us differently.  While bequests are by far the most common, you may be interested in a planned gift that provides income and benefits during your lifetime.  Arizona Science Center will work closely with your estate planner to determine the best plan for you and your loved ones. 
 
By planning ahead, you will enrich the lives of many generations to come.
