Planned Giving

The McKim & Morgan Society is named for Charles Follen McKim and J. Pierpont Morgan, founders of the American Academy in Rome. Their visionary leadership created the Academy, located it on the highest hill within the ancient walls in Rome, and began the endowment that established the Academy and helped to assure its permanence.

The McKim & Morgan Society is comprised of individuals who have made a commitment to the future of the American Academy in Rome by including the Academy in their estate plans, and have provided gift documentation to the Academy. Members include those who have written a charitable gift to the Academy by bequest, made a life income arrangement for the benefit of the Academy, or named the Academy as beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.
