The Thomas S. Fiske SocietyNamed 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:

  • The assurance that your gift will advance mathematics beyond your lifetime
  • A Fiske Society memento
  • Special invitations and mailings
  • Recognition on the Donor Wall of Honor at our Providence headquarters
  • Recognition on the annual Contributors List and AMS website
