PERPETUATING MY VALUES

PERPETUATING MY VALUES

PERPETUATING MY VALUES: I am a donor in ARI's planned giving program for a deeply personal reason: to the extent possible, I want my most important values to survive me, long-range. These are the philosophical values which have given meaning and direction to my life. Thus, I have a sense of quiet satisfaction and certainty from knowing that I have made irrevocable provisions for the future existence of the Ayn Rand Institute and Objectivism.

Mary Ann Sures, art historian
Gaithersburg, Maryland

To experience the kind of world foreshadowed by Ayn Rand today, I need to do something to bring it about tomorrow. But to change the world is a big, long-range job that requires the work of professionals. The Ayn Rand Institute offers me a way of fighting professionally for my values, today and tomorrow. We all have to make provision for our future and the future of our loved ones; the planned gift I have arranged — one that pays income to me for life — offers a way of doing that and benefitting ARI at the same time. I consider it an investment in all my values, from the most immediate and personal to the most long-term and global.

John Dawson, businessman
McKinnon, Victoria, Australia

Leaving a bequest to the Ayn Rand Institute is a special way to buy time with money. I support ARI because advancing Objectivism is important to me. ARI is my agent in this effort. A bequest of assets, which I no longer will need to support my own life, will finance the continuation of this work after my death. In this way, I effectively extend my own lifespan!

Stephen Doursen, engineer
Preble County, Ohio

At a young age, I was very fortunate to have discovered Ayn Rand's wonderful philosophy of reason, individualism and happiness. That experience changed my life. I want very much to give as many students as possible the opportunity to discover those same ideas. Supporting the Atlantis Legacy Program assures me that Rand's heroic novels will be taught and will have an impact long after I am gone.
