The ability to secure AMOA’s future by building endowment today is both a challenge and an opportunity. We rely almost entirely on private support, so a strong endowment will secure AMOA’s future and connect the next generation to an outstanding array of programming and a visual arts collection. We invite you to play an essential role in our future growth with an investment in the Anderson Museum of Art.
A bequest is one of the simplest ways to make a gift and a great way to help AMOA ensure its longevity, collection quality, and sustainability. By including AMOA in your will, you can make a difference for generations to come. Whether you wish to provide general operating income or support a specific fund, your bequest expresses your lasting commitment to the importance and value of the arts.
A bequest to AMOA may also help you meet your financial and estate planning goals since your gift would be eligible for an estate tax charitable deduction.
A Beneficiary on Your Insurance Policy
Please consider naming AMOA as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy. You may do this to create certain tax or financial planning advantages. Such choices should be discussed with your advisors (i.e., attorney, accountant, financial planner). Your life insurance company may have guidelines about whom or what can be named as a beneficiary or they may ask for further information or documentation about your designation.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and mutual funds, are excellent ways to support AMOA. Such gifts are simple and may provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash. Please talk to your financial advisors and ask us about transferring gifts of securities.
