The American College of Gastroenterology advances excellence and the delivery of the finest clinical care. By including the ACG / ACG Institute as part of your estate plan, you can leave your own personal legacy and have a significant impact on the training and development of tomorrow’s gastroenterologists. A planned gift will support evidence-based medicine, clinical research and training, leadership development, visiting professorships and regional training, and much more.

The ACG Institute Legacy Society

Legacy Society members share a commitment to the future of high-quality clinical gastroenterology and to advancing education and research related to digestive health. Legacy Society members are also invested in leadership development—identifying and mentoring the GI clinicians of tomorrow.

The ACG Institute Legacy Society recognizes members of the College and the community who have made a commitment to ensure the future of excellence and innovation in clinical gastroenterology by making a provision to benefit the ACG or the ACG Institute through their estate plan.


A will can be transformative. In addition to providing for your family and as a way to clarify your wishes, it is also a way to ensure that your assets can be put to good use far into the future. One of the easiest ways to create your legacy in support of clinical research and education in gastroenterology is through a bequest to the American College of Gastroenterology.

A charitable provision in your will, codicil, or living trust that precipitates a gift should reflect your desires and passions, as well as your own particular circumstances. We hope that the example above is helpful to you and your advisors.
