AOS Legacy Circle

Contributions by generous members and nonmembers through bequests and other planned gifts ensure sustained financial support for AOS. Planning a gift is an excellent way to secure the type of legacy you want to leave to the ornithological community while protecting the society's future.

Our Legacy Circle recognizes donors who inform AOS about their plans to support the society through their will, estate, or remainder interest in a charitable trust, retirement plan, or insurance policy. The following individuals have joined this visionary group:

  • Carla Cicero
  • Penny Ficken
  • Mark E. Hauber
  • James Kushlan
  • James R. and Florence A. McGuire
  • Elizabeth Anne Schreiber

If you have included AOS in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to recognize you as a member of the Legacy Circle, but should you prefer that your bequest or planned gift remain confidential, we will abide by your wishes; what is most important is for AOS to be able to assist you in making certain your intentions will be carried out. Contact AOS Executive Director Melinda Pruett-Jones at 312-665-7936 or
