  • Creating a life income gift that will ultimately benefit the American Chemical Society.
  • Naming American Chemical Society as a beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement plan.

As an ACS Legacy Leader you will receive a distinctive lapel pin and invitations to the American Chemical Society's special events.
