Is the museum already included in your estate plan?
A Gift in Your Will
A gift in your will continues your support of the museum’s important mission and allows you to make an even bigger impact than you ever thought possible! Whether you give a set amount, or a percentage of your estate, your gift will be a high-impact gift that will empower the museum for years to come. Learn more >

A Gift of Stock
If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to share a gift with the museum, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock that you’ve owned for more than a year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize.

A Gift From Your IRA
If you’re 70½ years old or order, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit the museum, and receive tax benefits in return! You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to the museum, without having to pay income taxes on the money. This gift option is known as qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover.
