Giving in Action
When Tom and Martha got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to the National Museum of the American Indian. As the family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their will and gift to ensure their children’s future financial security while also extending their support of the museum.
They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that the museum received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now have peace of mind knowing their plans will provide for both the people and places they love.
