Introduction & Mission
The American Society of International Law is the leading U.S.-based organization promoting the study and use of international law. It derives its strength from the committed involvement of its members: through their contributions of time, talent, and treasure, ASIL members participate in a tradition of educational scholarship and fellowship begun in 1906.
One way members lend financial support to the Society's work is to include ASIL in their estate plans. Such donations, called planned gifts, are among the most meaningful to make and to receive. Not only do they provide lasting support for ASIL education programs, but they also can offer considerable tax advantages to the donor and can be surprisingly easy to set up.
To help members with such gift planning, the Society in 2004 created the ASIL Heritage Circle, which has a four-part mission:
- to provide planned and dedicated giving opportunities to ASIL members;
- to honor members who have included commitments to the ASIL in their estate plans;
- to provide gift planning information to ASIL members; and
- to help build the ASIL's endowment.
