The Art of Creating a Legacy


You can leave a lasting impact through a planned gift to the Vero Beach Museum of Art.  A legacy gift is a testament to your confidence in the future of the Museum and is a way to a leave an enduring connection to an institution you are passionate about.

There are many types of planned gifts. The easiest way to make an impact is through a gift in your will or living trust.You can gift a specific amount of money or a percentage of your total estate. This allows you the flexibility to change your mind at any time and your estate may benefit from a federal estate tax charitable deduction for the amount of the gift.
