Plan a Gift for the Future

Leave a legacy for art

Members and friends may support The Fort Wayne Museum of Art in a number of ways beyond gifts made in their lifetime. This type of giving to the museum leaves a lasting impression on an organization near to you, and forever links your good name to the efforts of visual art advancement in Northeast Indiana.

A vast range of giving opportunities are available  from outright gifts of cash and securities to life income gifts and sophisticated estate-planning vehicles that have favorable financial and tax benefits. 

The term "planned giving" refers to any major gift that involves financial or estate planning. Such gifts can provide important benefits both to you and to the Museum. The different types of planned gifts include bequests, life income plans (charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts), charitable lead trusts, gifts of life insurance policies, and gifts of tangible property, including art.

Planned giving is an impactful way of playing a role in the museum's long term vitality as the leading contributor to the visual arts in Northeast Indiana. The staff of the Museum Development Office can work with you and your advisers to structure a gift that best fulfills your charitable goals.
