Many people who are dedicated to seeing contemporary art develop, flourish, and remain dynamic in our community have included SFMOMA in their estate plans. Making a planned gift — whether by including a bequest to the museum in your will or by naming SFMOMA as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund — provides essential support for the museum's future.
