JA Heritage Society

Some faithful friends of Junior Achievement have planned to support the organization beyond their lifetimes.  By including Junior Achievement in their estate planning, these caring individuals have taken deliberate steps to ensure and enhance Junior Achievement's future.  To recognize and honor these ardent supporters, Junior Achievement has established the Junior Achievement Heritage Society.  Membership will be open to all those individuals who include Junior Achievement in their estate planning through such instruments as bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, and life insurance.
