From the ABI Anthony H.N. Schnelling Endowment Fund
 
 

Announcing the ABI Founders Society

Become a member of the new ABI Founders Society today by including the American Bankruptcy Institute in your estate planning. All of the proceeds from the ABI Founders Society benefit the ABI Endowment Fund. When you include ABI in your estate plan, your generosity helps provide additional funding for the Endowment so that it can continue to be the leading resource for research and education for our industry well into the future.

 

“The ABI Founders Society was created to give the founding members of ABI the recognition they deserve while providing an avenue for them to continue to support the financial stability of the ABI Endowment Fund. We think this is a great opportunity for new and established ABI members to help ensure the long-term viability of the Endowment by becoming a member of the ABI Founders Society.”
— Christoper A. Ward
