Planned Gifts

Create your legacy. Secure our future.

Like our founders, Dr. James E. Church and Charles F. Cutts, many supporters of the Nevada Museum of Art choose to ensure the Museum’s future and enhance their community with estate planning and legacy gifts. There are a number of creative ways to support the Museum in which you and your loved ones benefit at the same time. Whether your intentions are to eliminate taxes, benefit from an increased income stream or make provisions for an organization that is meaningful to you in your estate plans, there is a gift to fit every objective. Planned gifts can give you the option to –

  • Make a gift that cost you nothing during your lifetime
  • Give appreciated stock and realize larger tax savings
  • Receive income for life in return for your gift
  • Donate your house, continue to live there, and get a tax break all at the same time

By including the Nevada Museum of Art in your estate plan, you leave a legacy for future generations to experience meaningful art and societal experiences, thereby securing our mission and future. The benefits are many including public recognition and membership in the Museum’s planned giving society.

Planned Giving Options

Through the power of planned giving, you can leave your legacy for future generations. Below are some ways to redirect your taxes to benefit your family, your community and our mission.

  • Most popular: bequest or living trust
  • Increases your cash flow: gift annuity
  • Least expensive source of cash: Life Insurance
  • Most popular with estate advisors: Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Greatly reduces estate tax: Charitable Lead Trust
  • Most possibilities: family business stock
  • Deduct now; transfer later: donor advised fund or private foundation
  • Potential for leaders: lifetime bequest
  • In-kind rather than cash: securities; real estate; life estate deed; or art & other assets

When it comes to estate and planned giving, it can be difficult to understand the numerous options available. In addition, the IRS frequently changes or adds provisions to existing estate planning laws. To assist you, the Planned Giving staff at the Museum is happy to provide you with a list of expert planners who will initially meet with you at no cost. You will be provided with the assistance needed to determine the best strategy to suit you, your family and your charitable intentions.
