Giving to our endowment fund is a way for your donation to work over many years. When you donate to the fund your donation stays invested and only a percentage (usually a portion of the interest) is used by the museum for its mission. Year after year the donation you make earns interest and dividends which then get used by the museum.
This is a way for you leave a lasting legacy. Consider a bequest to this fund when doing your estate planning. Check with a tax advisor and ask if a bequest would reduce your estate tax liability.
