Planned Legacy Giving
Plan your legacy with San Diego Children's Discovery Museum and ensure the Museum remains a source of lifelong learning and discovery for generations to come! Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for the Museum and our mission while accomodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to San Diego Children's Discovery Museum.
We are pleased to offer many options for legacy giving to support our Museum:
- IRA Giving
- Life Insurance
- Bank Account Survivorship Benefit
- Testamentary Gift
- Charitable Trust
- Stock Gift
Please contact our Development Department for information regarding bequests, securities, Charitable Gift Annuities, life insurance, property assets, real estate, and endowment. Planned Gifts include bequests through your will or trust, gifts of real estate, life insurance or other assets. The Museum is happy to work with your and your financial advisor to help craft a gift that meets your personal and financial goals.
