Legacy Society

The Legacy Giving Program

Thank you for considering a gift to the Legacy Giving program. Our members, donors, and friends are the heart of our organization! 

The Legacy Giving program was established to allow members and friends of the GAI to make a financial contribution that positively impacts the sustainability and long-term vision of the GAI. This can involve including the GAI in a will or bequest, financial donations, or planned gift options such as annuities, trusts, life insurance, or real estate.

Become part of the Legacy Society

Anyone who has named the GAI as a beneficiary in his or her estate plan or made a cash donation or pledge valued at $5,000 or more is eligible for Legacy Society membership.

Benefits include:

— Recognition on the GAI Legacy Tree, a permanent Haus installation, and other major donor listings

— Legacy gifts may be memorialized in honor of a loved one or special occasion

— Invitations to special VIP events

— Lifetime GAI membership

Why should I consider a Legacy gift?

You can make a gift now that will have an immediate impact on the GAI’s operating budget or you can plan to make a substantial gift to the GAI in the future. Either way, there are giving options that will allow you to provide sustaining support to the GAI and its mission, and in many cases benefit you by lowering your taxable income.

How will my gift be used?

Gifts can be directed into one or a combination of the four major Legacy Funds:

Operations and Cultural Programming

Haus & Grounds for repairs, maintenance, and new building projects

Education for educational programs and scholarships

Endowment for long-term growth of principal and investment income
