Welcome to Gift Planning

We at the museum are reminded every day of the power of gift planning through our founders—John Huntington, Hinman Hurlbut, Horace Kelly, and Jeptha Wade II. All four made visionary gifts to establish the Cleveland Museum of Art, and through their gift planning their vision became a reality in 1916.

Making a gift to the Cleveland Museum of Art through gift planning can be done regardless of your net worth, using a variety of fiscal planning tools such as charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, and life insurance. Often there are tax incentives and benefits that encourage charitable giving.

Like our founders of yesterday, our mission “for the benefit of all people forever” can be continued today through your legacy in artistic excellence, scholarship, or community outreach. We look forward to working with you to accomplish your philanthropic goals and invite you to explore our website and ask questions.
