Planned gifts make the Museum strong. It means that our educational mission will be able to continue for years to come. Everyone that makes a planned gift to the Museum becomes a member of the 1936 Society.
Benefits of joining the 1936 Society include:
- Lifetime membership in the 1936 Society
- Invitations to special events honoring the members of the 1936 Society
- Special recognition in the Museum’s annual report
- The personal satisfaction of knowing your generosity will inspire future generations
For many people, the easiest way to make a planned gift is through a bequest, a provision in a will directing one’s wishes in regards to the disposition of assets. A bequest allows you to make a long-term commitment without affecting your current standard of living. You can arrange to leave a bequest to the Brick Store Museum by designating on your will either a specific amount or a percentage of the residue or your estate. In addition, one can designate the Brick Store Museum as a beneficiary of a revocable trust or retirement plan.
Although planned giving is a common and easily-accomplished method of making a charitable contribution, the information provided here is not intended as legal or tax advice. Planned giving documents should be prepared in consultation with your attorney, accountant, and/or estate planner.
The Brick Store Museum’s Gift Acceptance Policy, provided below, governs the acceptance of gifts and offers guidance to prospective donors and the professional advisors in making gifts.
