Planned Gifts

Donors play a vital role in fortifying the stability of The Strong museumand its continuing service to local, regional, national, and international audiences. Planning now to make a deferred gift will help ensure that the unique museum experience will be available to future generations.

Through foresight and generosity, individuals can work with the museum to fulfill long-term philanthropic goals while managing current tax situations. A deferred gift may also afford the opportunity to make a more significant gift than might otherwise be possible.

Planned gifts may be made using any of the following vehicles:

  • Bequests
  • Appreciated Securities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Real Property
  • Pooled Life Income Fund

It is important to consult with a financial advisor before making major financial decisions. Donors should let the museum know if it is included in an estate plan so that its leaders can express the institution’s gratitude.
