Inspire the Next Generation

Since the MFA’s founding, bequests and other types of planned gifts have strengthened the Museum’s endowment and financial sustainability, providing vital support for world-class exhibitions, educational programs for all ages, and the care of our extraordinary collection. There are many ways to include the MFA in your long-term plans that can benefit you and your loved ones, increase income, and reduce taxes, while fulfilling your charitable goals.

Learn more about the different types of planned gift opportunities, such as bequests and charitable gift annuities.

Our easy-to use gift calculator can also provide you with an illustration of the income and tax benefits for a variety of planned gift scenarios.

Should you choose to include the MFA in your plans, we hope you will let us know so that we may welcome you into the Sargent Society.
