Establish a Charitable Trust

Charitable trusts provide income for the donor or a designated loved one for the term of the trust (life or a specified number of years) while also providing a significant contribution to the museum at a substantial tax advantage. Trusts may be established during a donor’s lifetime (inter vivos trusts) or through an estate (testamentary trusts).
