Gift planning is a valuable tool that does not have to cost you anything today, but may provide you with a charitable income tax deduction or save you capital gains tax for the year you make the gift… all while providing a lasting legacy that will help the Museum thrive for the generations to come.

Gifts can range from a simple outright bequest in a will, to naming the Animal History Museum as beneficiary of an insurance policy whose coverage your family will not need, to complex trusts.

Please email Executive Director Amy Breyer at if you would like to explore gift planning further.
