Your estate plans represent more than years of hard work or accumulated assets, they also reflect the values which you hold dear in life and wish to perpetuate. The Legacy Society recognizes people who make any bequest or have indicated they have included the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in their estate plans.
Benefits of the Legacy Society are the same as those of the 1851 Society. You will also have the satisfaction and peace of mind knowing that your estate will work for the betterment of all people and the perpetuation of a civil society. Your contribution will support our daily operations to allow us the ability to continue making an impact for liberty and freedom for all.
