Thank you for your interest in making a planned gift to the American Academy of Dermatology. Planned gifts provide creative and flexible strategies for your estate and charitable planning. Some planned gifts provide you with income. Many of them can reduce your taxes. The greatest benefit, however, lies in knowing you are supporting work that fuels our long-term strength and growth so that we can provide the best patient care, raise the profile of the profession and improve our communities well into the future.

You can make a difference by supporting the American Academy of Dermatology with a bequest directed at any purpose or Academy program of your choice. By including the AAD in your estate plans, you will help to ensure the long-term availability of the Academy’s life-changing programs and services. We would be happy to discuss your options with you or your adviser. For more information or to schedule a time to meet, please contact us at:

The Academy extends its deep gratitude to those who have chosen to continue the critical work of the Academy through a gift to the AAD in their wills, trusts, or estate plans. They are recognized as members of the 1938 Legacy Society. Named in honor of the year the AAD was founded, the Legacy Society allows the Academy to thank these supporters publicly for their contributions to the specialty and serves as inspiration to others.
