Remember Us in Your Will

Bequests are the most popular way to make a future gift to the Museum. Structure your Will to provide for your family first. Then, include a gift to the charitable organizations you love. Just a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes.

Sample Bequest Language

Donate Stocks

If you give stocks you’ve owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you’ll qualify for significant tax advantages when you donate these securities to Bishop Museum.

Give Retirement Plan Assets

Consider making Bishop Museum a beneficiary of your retirement plan assets, such as a 401(k) or 403(b) plan. You can designate either a percentage or the total balance as a gift to the Museum. With this type of gift, you can also leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones. These assets can also be used to make a gift to Bishop Museum during your lifetime to reduce the total that will incur estate and income taxes.

Use Life Insurance to Make a Gift

There are several ways you can use life insurance to give back to Bishop Museum. You can transfer a policy outright to Bishop Museum or name the Museum as a beneficiary. We can help you explore your options.

Make a Gift and Receive Fixed Payments for Life

If you’d like to support Bishop Museum and receive steady payments for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

Arrange a Charitable Trust

With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the charities of your choice.
