|Motto||An Organization Dedicated to Paying it Forward|
The Heinlein Society was founded in 1997 with the assistance of Robert Heinlein's widow, Virginia Heinlein, and is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation established in California. The "semi-scholarly" society exists to "preserve the legacy of renowned writer Robert Anson Heinlein left"; according to it, it accomplishes this through promoting "Heinlein blood drives", distributing copies of Heinlein's works to U.S. military personnel, awarding scholarships, and promoting scholarly research on Heinlein. The society also sponsors the Robert A. Heinlein Award.
