Legacy Giving

The SAEM Foundation offers charitable giving opportunities to help you achieve your financial and estate planning goals. Thank you for your interest in including the SAEM Foundation in your estate planning.  

Contact the SAEM office at, 847-813-9823, or send us an email foundation@saem.org.


A gift by will or revocable trust can be simple to make and provides tax benefits for your estate.


I give, devise, and bequeath to The SAEM Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization having its principal offices in Des Plaines, Illinois: the sum of $_____ or _____ percent of my estate. [or all (or _____ percentage of) the rest, residue and remainder of my estate.] 
This gift is to be used to further the charitable purposes of The SAEM Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, at the discretion of the foundation's board of trustees.
The SAEM Foundation Taxpayer Identification Number is 26-2371803.



By designating the SAEM Foundation as a charitable beneficiary of your individual retirement account, you can make a valuable charitable gift, transfer a highly taxable asset to charity tax-free, and reduce your taxable estate. Then other assets, such as real property and appreciated securities, can more readily be transferred with tax advantages to your individual beneficiaries.




With a charitable remainder trust, you or other named individuals, can receive income for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.  By designating the SAEM Foundation as a beneficiary, you are helping to secure the future of SAEM Foundation.



An insurance policy that names the SAEM Foundation as beneficiary, or one for which you transfer ownership, provides tax benefits to you, as well as important charitable support to the foundation programs.


Investing in Our Future

Sklar David

I decided to dedicate a portion of my estate to the SAEM Foundation to support our future researchers as they develop scholarly expertise and continue to build our specialty. I hope many of you will join me in supporting our specialty and our future through building the endowment of the SAEM Foundation.
