There are many ways to make a planned gift to the Morean to fit your family, finances, and charitable legacy. A bequest from your will or trust is among the simplest and most common ways to give. By including the Morean in your estate plans, you are ensuring that Morean will be able to continue to build upon the strength of its education programs and the Chihuly Collection and remain the premier arts facility of its kind.
Making the most out of your gift to the Morean Arts Center is easy to do by checking with your Human Resources Department to see if your employer offers a Matching Gift. If so, request a matching gift form from them and send it with your check. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!
