More Ways to Support Creativity

LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY

Help the Children’s Creativity Museum enrich the lives of future generations of children by making a planned gift or bequest.  Donors can show their financial support in ways they might not have thought possible and sometimes significantly enhance their own financial situation through a variety of tax incentives.  The information that follows suggests ways to provide a lasting legacy to the Museum.

  • Bequest – name the Children’s Creativity Museum in your will or trust as a way of securing the Museum’s future without affecting your cashflow during your lifetime.
  • Beneficiary Designation – name the Children’s Creativity Museum as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan, which can transfer directly to the Children’s Creativity Museum without going through probate.
