Planned Giving

Your planned gift ensures the future of seismology.

Every gift to SSA is an act of kindness. We are all traveling on a professional journey, and giving to others represents the choice to stop, pull over and assist. One of the greatest acts of kindness, one that can help more people than you may have ever thought possible, is a Planned Gift.

Planned gifts provide a foundational source of funding for SSA’s programs for many years to come. They demonstrate a deep and lasting commitment to continuing our mission.

The choice to make a planned gift can be your opportunity to support seismology with a larger gift than you might be able to make through your current income alone.

If our community has mattered in your life, if the connections you have made within it have helped you, we invite you to consider this option to support your fellow travelers at SSA far into the future.

To leave SSA in your will today, share this sentence with your attorney or financial planner: “I bequeath $______ or _____% of my estate to the Seismological Society of America, ADDRESS (tax ID# 94-6078791).”

And please let us know your plans, so that we may recognize you as part of SSA’s Legacy Society if you wish.

Contact SSA today if you have any questions about leaving a lasting legacy and supporting the future of seismology.
