The Heritage Society celebrates NAE members and friends for the thoughtful gesture of planning a gift today that provides for the future. It recognizes individuals who have included a bequest in their will or planned another type of deferred gift to the NAE.

Participation in the Heritage Society demonstrates your desire to leave a legacy that upholds the value of engineering through the critical work that is done by the Academy. Planned gifts not only help build endowment, but are essential to secure NAE's long-term strength.
