Planned Giving

Legacy gifts strengthen the museum’s endowment, provide much-needed annual income, and support its extraordinary collection and acclaimed educational programs. By including the museum in your estate planning, you can achieve the goals that are important to you—to benefit yourself, your family, and an institution that you value and believe in.

In addition to a bequest in your will, there are other ways you may make a legacy gift. You can name the museum as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, or life insurance policy. If you are looking for a way to supplement your income, you can establish a charitable gift annuity, or a charitable remainder trust, which are gifts that will support the museum and pay you, and/or other designated beneficiaries, income for life.
