Planned Giving

Planned Giving

From the Museum’s onset, planned gifts have helped to sustain the Museum. Today, planned gifts are more important than ever to ensure the Museum’s stability and future success. 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.

There are many different types of planned gifts. The Legacy Society recognizes members and friends who demonstrate their deep commitment to preserving the legacy of the Holocaust and teaching its lessons by making a planned gift or including the Museum in their estate plans. Through their foresight and generosity, these individuals play a key role in establishing a sound foundation for the Museum and ensuring its growth and success in the future. Members receive invitations to select Museum events and programs. They are acknowledged, with their permission, in Museum publications.

We would be pleased to work with you and your advisors to structure a gift that best fulfills your charitable goals and estate objectives. If you have or are already planning to leave the Museum a planned gift, please let us know and we will recognize your generosity as a member of The Legacy Society.
