Planned Giving


By joining the Museum of Idaho’s Legacy Society, you can make an estate gift that will not only have a lasting impact but also will ensure that your charitable interests are supported and your financial objectives are maximized. The Museum of Idaho is currently raising funds for the NEH Challenge grant for our expansion campaign. If you choose to designate your contribution towards expansion, the NEH will match and funds will be expended for the approved purposes of this grant.

There are a variety of options available that can benefit you and the museum including:

  • Gifts and Bequests of Retirement Assets
  • Stocks and Appreciated Securities
  • Wills and Living Trusts
  • Charitable Trusts
  • Real Estate Gifts

You may benefit by:

  • Receiving charitable deductions
  • Avoiding capital gains
  • Reducing your estate taxes
  • Increasing your cash flow

If you are considering supporting the Museum of Idaho in this way, we recommend that you speak with a financial advisor. If you need assistance in locating a financial advisor, please contact Nick Gailey, Director of Development at (209) 522-1400 ext. 3013, and he will be pleased to help you locate someone who will work with you to create a gift plan that meets your philanthropic vision.
