The American Floral Endowment created the Legacy Circle – an honorary organization composed of persons who have made provision for a planned gift to AFE through a bequest, a life insurance policy, a trust, or otherwise, such as a retirement plan beneficiary designation.

The Legacy Circle allows AFE to extend our warm appreciation to individuals who notify us of their thoughtful gift intentions.

If you have already arranged for a planned gift to benefit AFE, we welcome you into the Legacy Circle and count you among our founding members. If not, we invite you to consider a bequest or other arrangement. We would be pleased to send you further information and, if you wish, meet with you personally to explore the various options.

Your support can provide vital assistance to AFE in our efforts to fund research and scholarships that are so critical to the industry. We need your help, and we look forward to expressing our gratitude through the Legacy Circle. Contact Debi Chedester (703) 838-5211 for more information.
