RAND Legacy Society

The RAND Legacy Society recognizes those who have made a planned gift to benefit RAND or Pardee RAND. A Legacy Society commitment may be unrestricted, providing RAND and Pardee RAND leaders with the flexibility to support the most pressing needs. Alternatively, your contribution can be designated to a particular area of research; directed to an impact fund to extend the reach of research and analysis; or allocated to support an endowed chair, fellowship, scholarship, or award.

Legacy Society supporters enjoy access to special events, workshops, and seminars. Your planned gift makes you a partner in our efforts to create a safer, healthier, and more prosperous future for generations to come.

Bequests and estate plan gifts

There are many ways to make a legacy gift. You can make a bequest—a gift from your estate—by including a provision in your will or living trust to leave a portion of your estate to RAND, Pardee RAND, or both. Alternatively, you can designate RAND or Pardee RAND as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or a retirement plan, including an IRA or 401(k) and 403(b) plans. A bequest can be made for a specific amount, a percentage, or the balance or residual portion of your estate.

Planned giving vehicles can provide you with immediate tax benefits or potential increased income during your lifetime while also providing RAND with an important financial foundation for the future.
