A Bequest from Barbara and Jeffrey Kaplan

Barbara and Jeffrey Kaplan "My husband and I are very happy to be members of the museum's Legacy Circle. In all honesty, it was a relatively easy decision for us to make as the museum became such an important part of our lives after we moved to Palm Springs more than 6 years ago. We felt it was the appropriate time in our lives to plan future bequests."

Barbara continued, "As a PSAM docent I know how important it is that the museum always be able to continue the many wonderful programs that it offers to the local community. We're pleased to know that we can contribute to the growth and continuation of the museum after we're gone."
