ASA Legacy Circle

The ASA Legacy Circle is a collection of individuals and families that are committed to the future of the African Studies Association and its mission. If you are looking to support the ASA’s mission and programming for generations to come, or would like to honor a loved one, we hope that you will consider making a planned gift.
If you plan to make a bequest or other donation through your estate planning, please be sure to include our correct legal name on all of your legal documents: “African Studies Association Inc., 54 Joyce Kilmer Avenue, Piscataway, NJ  08854, a nonprofit corporation or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number: 58-1832301.” Not only will your gift make a significant impact on the Association’s work and the continuation of its mission, but it can also ease the tax burden on your heirs. 

Why Should I Join the ASA Legacy Circle?

ASA’s Legacy Circle is not only an opportunity to invest in the future of the field, but a way to celebrate that commitment with family, friends, and the broader ASA community. It is also a way to ensure that the programs you are most passionate about are funded in perpetuity, untouched by the austerity cuts and shifting enrollments of universities and colleges. The ASA recognizes members of the Legacy Circle on our website, in publications, and in other appropriate ways each year. Of course, Legacy Circle members may remain anonymous if they so wish.
With your help, the ASA will continue to flourish and expand to meet the needs of students, scholars, and practitioners for decades to come.

–– Your donation will impact the programs you most care about for years to come.
–– Your legacy will continue through the ASA’s legacy circle and funded programs.
–– There is no minimum donation amount.
–– You can save or reduce the tax burden on your heirs.
