One of the most popular and easiest ways to make a planned gift is to include Glenbow Museum in your will or revocable living trust. If you have already drafted a will, your attorney may add Glenbow Museum as a beneficiary through a simple amendment called a codicil. Similarly, a gift provision for Glenbow Museum may be added to a revocable trust agreement.
There are several ways for you to remember Glenbow Museum in your will or trust.
- You may name the museum as a specific beneficiary, stating a fixed dollar amount or a percentage of your estate that you wish to leave Glenbow Museum.
- You may name Glenbow Museum as a remainder beneficiary, providing for the museum to receive assets from your estate after all your specific beneficiaries have received their assets.
- Your gift may also be contingent, so that assets go to the Museum if someone named as a beneficiary does not survive you.
In addition to cash, you can bequeath securities, real estate, art, and other forms of personal property. A bequest can be made for the general benefit of Glenbow Museum or for the benefit of a particular department or program. If you decide to designate your gift for anything other than general use, we strongly encourage you to contact the Planned Giving Coordinator in advance. This will enable us to work with you to ensure that we are able to accommodate your wishes.
