La Società McKim & Morgan

La Società McKim & Morgan (“McKim & Morgan Society”) trae il suo nome da Charles Follen McKim e da John Pierpoint Morgan, fondatori dell’American Academy in Rome. La loro capacità di guida e lo spirito visionario crearono l’Accademia, collocandola sulla maggiore altura di Roma entro le mura, e diedero vita al fondo iniziale dell’Accademia, curandone la permanenza e la crescita future.

La Società McKim & Morgan è costituita da persone che si impegnano per il futuro dell’American Academy in Rome, inserendola tra gli eredi testamentari, e che hanno prodotto la documentazione di una donazione ad essa indirizzata. La Società riunisce quanti hanno dato disposizione scritta di un lascito o di una rendita vitalizia a favore dell’Accademia, o che l’hanno inserita tra i beneficiari di un fondo pensionistico o di un’assicurazione sulla vita.
