Legacy Club

Legacy Club

The SME Foundation Legacy Club is a way for us to appreciate your generosity and honor those who have invested in SME’s future by including the SME Foundation as a named beneficiary in their estate plans. 

Estate planning with the SME Foundation includes wills and trusts that transfer assets at a time deemed by the donor and are an excellent way to create a lasting legacy. Legacy gifts can be directed to the SME Foundation endowment or be designated to the program of your choice. Gifts to the SME Endowment fund are invested strategically to preserve the original principal and generate interest income to support programs within the Foundation.

Many supporters like you have helped the SME Foundation grow by donating to meet current and future needs. By leaving a Legacy gift, your contributions will support the mining and minerals industry for years to come.

Thank you to the members of our Legacy Club who have gone before us.
Their generosity will continue to make a difference to the SME Foundation and the mining/minerals community for many years to come.
