Honorary Chairman, Legacy Society
As treasurer of the board of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, I want to express my gratitude for your support. Your devotion to freedom and your vote of confidence in the Mackinac Center are greatly appreciated.
This year I hope you will join me as a member of the Mackinac Center Legacy Society and be part of preserving a strong voice for liberty in Michigan and our nation for years to come. You can do this by making a charitable gift to the Mackinac Center in your will or estate plan.
In the next 20 years, trillions of dollars in household wealth in our nation will be transferred to the next generation. Most of this will be handed down to children or other family members, but if just 5 percent were given to charity, it would have $441 billion in impact.
As a father and grandfather, I do not want to shortchange the next generation of the opportunities I have enjoyed as an American. Yet that is what you and I risk without organizations like the Mackinac Center to defend liberty and hold government in check.
The Mackinac Center’s research, education and legal efforts all serve to preserve our nation’s founding principles of limited government, free markets and the rule of law.
When you join the Legacy Society, you help ensure that this work will continue in the years ahead — and you enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that your hard-earned assets will support the principles you live by.
You also will enjoy other benefits, including special seating at Mackinac Center events and recognition at our annual Legacy Society gathering.
If you have already named the Mackinac Center in your will or estate plan, thank you! You have our deepest gratitude.
If you are considering joining the Legacy Society, please know that there are many ways to make a gift, such as by naming the Mackinac Center in your will or trust, adding the Center as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or IRA, or establishing an endowment. Our team would be happy to discuss any of these options with you. Please feel free to call them at 989-631-0900 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your support.
