We encourage you to consider joining a very special group of Stearns History Museum & Research Center supporters - friends who express their support for the future of the Museum by including a bequest or other life income gift in their estate plan.
A planned gift is a philanthropic gift that is funded either during your lifetime or after your death. The gift is part of a larger estate-planning process in which you decide how certain assets are distributed.
There are many financial instruments available and an estate planner can help you achieve your long-term financial goals, allowing you to take care of loved ones while still supporting organizations such as the Stearns History Museum. Unless otherwise restricted by you as the donor, you planned gift to the Stearns History Museum will support the endowment – meaning your gift will truly benefit the long-term health of the organization for generations to come.
