Define your legacy.
When a gift to THELMA becomes part of your legacy, you help ensure that the center will continue to fulfill its mission for generations to come. You enable our founding vision to enrich the lives of our community through the arts.
There are many planned giving vehicles that can support both your charitable and personal financial goals. Making a planned gift—whether by including a bequest to the center in your will or by naming THELMA as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund—provides essential support for the museum’s future. Gift planning can offer significant tax advantages and, in some cases, generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.
Planned gifts can also endow specific interests—such as a curatorial, learning, or art acquisition endowment. If you anticipate your bequest will be $250,000 or larger, you may wish to establish a named endowment to support a specific department or area of the museum.
