The Rosenwald Society
The Museum's Rosenwald Society honors Julius Rosenwald - a forward-thinking philanthropist who ensured that more than 360,000 school children each year are fascinated and excited about science.
Julius Rosenwald gave the city of Chicago a remembrance that has touched the lives of over 160 million people. He imagined a place of busy hands and busy minds... where people of all ages could explore science and technology. More than just the dissemination of information, he envisioned FASCINATION. He ensured that his vision and commitment would continue long after he was gone.
The Rosenwald Society is the perfect way for individuals to make a similar impact - to demonstrate their love of learning. The Rosenwald Society recognizes individuals who have made a planned or deferred gift through their wills, trusts or other estate gifts. Planned or deferred gifts include: bequest through a will; charitable gift annuity; charitable remainder unitrust; charitable remainder annuity trust; charitable lead trust; gift of life insurance; designation in retirement plans and others.
There is no better time than now to make a lasting impression on a Chicago icon and at the same time help us advance our vision for the future, which will inspire the next generation of great scientists, doctors, engineers and skilled professionals that will build the bright future that we all want for our children.
