The Legacy Society

A Planned Giving Society of the South Florida Museum is being developed to recognize friends and benefactors who make a commitment to the museum as part of their estate plans. Too often, these gifts are unrecognized because they come at the end of the donors’ lives. The Planned Giving Society will provide a way to recognize and thank donors during their lifetimes.

The only requirement to become a member of the Planned Giving Society is a statement of establishment or intent to leave a gift to the Museum in one’s estate plan. Members of the Planned Giving Society are special individuals whom have made such a commitment to provide charitable gifts through their estate planning to the Museum.

For further information about the Planned Giving Society please call the Martha Wells at (941) 746-4131, ext. 135 or email
