Planned Estate Gifts
For many donors, an outright gift is not the best option. Through thoughtful planning, there are a number of ways you can make meaningful contributions while at the same time meeting personal planning goals. Bequests, retirement assets, life insurance, stock, and gift annuities are all ways to benefit the Aquarium while providing potential income tax and estate tax benefits for the giver and their estate.
