The Marin Art & Garden Center is proud to announce our Legacy Society to honor those donors who have made a bequest to MAGC in their estate planning.  As a beloved resource for the Marin community for almost 75 years, the Marin Art & Garden Center has a long history of being supported by generous legacy donations.

Your gift will ensure the future of MAGC’s mission to preserve and share our beautiful historic site, while enriching our community through exploration and discovery in the arts and the natural environment, while also allowing you to leave your own legacy.

What types of assets can I include in my estate planning for MAGC?

Cash: Designate in your estate plan as a specific dollar amount or as a percentage of your estate.

Publicly traded securities (stocks, bonds, other securities): Designate in your estate plan certain securities to be given to MAGC.

Real estate: Your primary residence or other real estate holdings that are part of your estate.

Retirement plan gifts (IRAs, 401K): If left to MAGC, our non-profit organization does not pay income or estate taxes on the distribution. You can obtain a beneficiary designation form from your IRA plan administrator.

Life insurance: Paid-up life insurance policies may be given either as part of your estate or by a change of designated beneficiary to MAGC.

We recommend that you consult with your tax professional if you are planning to bequeath an asset to MAGC. Making a planned charitable gift may require the assistance of an attorney, financial planner or CPA to help establish your contribution.
