Provide for the Museum’s Future

The Legacy Circle
A planned gift to Sandy Spring Museum ensures that our community-centric model of museum management  operates at the highest level.  Each year we successfully seek  annual support of  loyal donors.  Our most loyal supporters understand the importance of including Sandy Spring Museum as part of their estate plan.

Individuals who include the Museum in their estate plans are eligible to become members of the Legacy Circle.  The Museum is pleased and proud to recognize planned gifts while the donor is living and again when the gift has been realized.

Simple Gifts Made via Your Will
When preparing your will, you may include a bequest intention to  Sandy Spring Museum.

“I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath ____ (a specific dollar amount, percentage of the residue of your estate, or a specific asset such as a bank account, stock, or real estate) to Sandy Spring Museum located at 17901 Bentley Road, Sandy Spring MD 20860, for its general purposes or as the Board of Directors may direct.”

Designate Sandy Spring Museum
Leaving  Sandy Spring Museum assets including life insurance or a retirement plan is an easy way to extend your support of the Museum and its programs. Once you have received a beneficiary form for your life insurance  or retirement plan, simply designate Sandy Spring Museum as a beneficiary on the form.

IRA Rollover Gift
We are pleased to point out the advantage of giving from your IRA.   If you are 70½ years old or older, you can give $1000 or less and up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity without having to pay income taxes on the distribution.
