Named after our founder Thomas S. Fiske, the Fiske Society honors individuals who have made a provision for the American Mathematical Society in their estate plan. Since the first bequest in 1929, estate gifts have enabled the AMS to serve the mathematics community in distinct ways. The Steele Prizes, Trjitzinsky Awards and more were made possible by mathematics supporters who, like Thomas S. Fiske, have shown a far-reaching commitment to mathematics.
Upon joining, members receive the following benefits:
We thank the following forward-thinking individuals for supporting the mathematics of the future through their estate plans:
You may become a member by letting us know you have made a gift to the AMS in your will or living trust, or you've designated us as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance policy, or other gift vehicle. No documentation is required, but sharing your plans with us may help to ensure we will be able to carry out your intentions. Information you share with us will remain confidential.

Mathematician, physicist, and suffragette Marion Reilly was the first person to leave a bequest to the American Mathematical Society, upon her death in 1928. A Dean at Bryn Mawr, she studied both in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, receiving instruction from Charlotte Angas Scott, Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell.
