Thunderbird Society

How to Join

If you are already a member, please fill out our Member Profile Form.

The following types of commitments, confirmed in writing and subject to certain restrictions, qualify you for membership in the Thunderbird Society:

If you have already included AFA in a bequest or other planned gift, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a member of the Thunderbird Society encourages others to follow your example. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but we urge you to let us know of your plans on a confidential basis in any case. It supports AFA's planning for the future. Of course, if you have not yet included AFA in your plans and you would like to explore the best options for you and your family, do not hesitate to contact us. We would be glad to assist you on a confidential basis and without any obligation.

Benefits of Membership

In an effort to preserve your legacy for the purpose it is intended, we have chosen a few simple ways to recognize your commitment. Each new member will receive a certificate of appreciation and letter of thanks from the President and CEO of AFA, along with a handsome recognition gift that we hope you will treasure for years to come.

In addition to these small expressions of gratitude, we hope you will allow us to recognize you as a member of the the Thunderbird Society in our annual donor recognition publication. Your inclusion in this publication encourages others to join in this important effort. Lastly, as a member of the Thunderbird Society, you will receive timely information, tips, and ongoing professional gift planning services from the Office of Planned Giving.
