In order to expedite estate distributions, the following sample language may be helpful: “I give, devise, bequeath [assets/percent share of the residue of my estate] to the New York Academy of Sciences, with its principal office at 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10007.”

If needed, the Academy’s tax ID number is: 13-1773640

Most bequests are used to provide support wherever it is needed most. If you wish to designate a specific purpose for your bequest, we encourage you to discuss your wishes with us in advance as the needs of the Academy change over time.

If you have made a commitment to support the New York Academy of Sciences through a gift in your will, trust, or retirement plan, please contact us to become a member of our 1817 Heritage Society.
