By remembering the Russell Kirk Center in your estate planning, you become a member of the Russell Kirk Legacy Society.

Your name will be permanently engraved on a prominent memorial within the historic Russell Kirk Library in Mecosta, Michigan. Your gift will help to provide promising members of the rising generation a place to engage in the kind of serious study necessary to revitalize our cultural heritage. Please let us know that you intend to include the Kirk Center in your estate planning and you will also receive invitations to upcoming events and new publications.

All members who join the Russell Kirk Legacy Society between now and December of 2020 will be named “Founding Members.”

For more information on joining the Russell Kirk Legacy Society, please download our brochure at right and contact us at to learn more about how you can leave a planned gift to the Russell Kirk Center.

We invite you to join your legacy to his by remembering the Russell Kirk Center for Cultural Renewal in your estate plans.

There are a number of ways you can support the Russell Kirk Center for Cultural Renewal as it seeks to recover, conserve, and enliven those enduring norms and principles that Russell Kirk called the Permanent Things. Careful planning can help you maximize the value of your gift while potentially reducing your tax burden both during your lifetime and beyond. Consider the many assets that we acquire as we go through life—retirement plans, commercial annuities, life insurance, savings, or bonds. All these assets may be good candidates for a tax-saving gift to the Russell Kirk Center, either now or in the future.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at to learn more about how you support the ongoing work of the Russell Kirk Center as part of your planned giving. We look forward to learning more about your intentions to join with us in the Kirk Center’s educational mission.
