Establishing a legacy
Philanthropy is larger than one’s life, and sometimes it spans generations.
You may have reached a point in your life at which you are thinking about the legacy you want to establish for the future. Consider including the CERN & Society Foundation in your will, and choose to be by the side of the students of tomorrow.
You do not need a great heritage to leave a great legacy. Even a small contribution is important.
Making a holograph or public will can be very easy.
You can bequeath a sum of money, precious belongings (like a work of art or precious jewel), real estate or other assets to the CERN & Society Foundation. We encourage you to seek professional advice to ensure that your will reflects your wishes, and the inheritance laws in your country.
CERN & Society Endowment Fund
A permanent legacy to strengthen the future of talents for generations to come
When you participate in the CERN & Society Endowment Fund, you are contributing in your name, or in the name of someone you wish to honour or remember, to a permanent fund. The fund is invested in a professionally managed diversified portfolio. Each year, a portion of the earnings is distributed to support important Education & Outreach initiatives, or a specific cause.
The permanent legacy you create will provide a vital source of support to help meet the current and future needs of identified projects or initiatives that are of particular interest to you.
