Your legacy is important. That’s why you take time to plan and provide for the people and causes that mean the most to you.

To honor those who have included the Foundation or one of our cultural institutions in your will or estate plan or are considering doing so, the Foundation will be hosting a Legacy Society event on May 11 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC). Come join us for a special reception focused on the impact of legacy giving at our museums and cultural institutions. The event includes a tour highlighting legacy gifts on display in the MIAC Living Treasure and Here, Now and Always exhibitions, led by museum executive director Polly Nordstrand (Hopi) and curator of ethnology, Tony Chavarria (Santa Clara Pueblo). Continental breakfast and refreshments will be served before the tour.

We are grateful to John Duncan, Chair, MNMF Legacy Society/Planned Giving, for his generous sponsorship and to John Rochester for helping plan and present this event for you and our Legacy Society members.

Contact Laura Sullivan, Director of Leadership Giving/Legacy Society, at laura@museumfoundation.org or call 505-216-0829 to RSVP for the event on May 11 or to discuss ways to make a planned gift to the Foundation.
