Legacy Circle

Legacy Circle members are farsighted and generous individuals and couples who include the museum in their wills, living trusts, or other estate plans. Although the museum has been the beneficiary of legacy gifts for many decades, our Legacy Circle was formally established more recently to recognize anyone who's thoughtful planning is helping to ensure our future. Joining this prestigious group is simple. Just let us know about any gift to the museum you are including in your estate plans. Contact Kerry Bresnahan, Major & Planned Gifts Officer for information about the simple documentation of planned gifts we request and to receive invitations to join us for annual Legacy Circle events.
