Generous Legacy Society Benefactors Leave $300,000 Gift to TFAS Programs

//////////////////////

A $300,000 estate gift to The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) will impact the lives of thousands of young leaders and ensure that TFAS can continue to build strong and influential programs for many generations to come.

The gift was made by a supporter who wished to remain anonymous and who was a member of the TFAS Legacy Society, a distinguished group of generous supporters who have included TFAS in their estate plans. Just last year, the society celebrated an important milestone, surpassing 100 members.

It is so crucial that we do whatever we can now to ensure that freedom will outlive us all.” — Bob Meissner, TFAS Legacy Society Chairman

The lastest Legacy Society gift comes at a critical time when the coronavirus crisis and subsequent shutdowns are hitting nonprofits with new and unprecedented difficulties. Despite these barriers, TFAS has stuck to our mission of teaching limited government and free-market principles by adapting our programs to reach young people virtually and deciding against seeking a government loan through the CARES act. TFAS does not accept government funding and relies solely on the voluntary support of generous individuals.

“The principles of the American Revolution that are embodied in the U.S. Constitution have stood the test of time, and won’t wither even in the face of this current pandemic. Today, it’s more important than ever to educate the rising generation about those principles,” said TFAS President Roger Ream ’76. “We are thankful for generous individuals like those of our Legacy Society for enabling us to continue our essential work, even during the most difficult of times.”

We invite you to join the TFAS Legacy Society and become a member of this distinguished group that is setting an example for others. Becoming a member is easy: Just let us know TFAS is part of your estate plan by contacting Ed Turner at 202-986-0384 or eturner@TFAS.org. You can also visit TFAS.org/Legacy to learn more.
