Gift Planning

Making a planned gift is a way for you to create a legacy that lives beyond your lifetime, while impacting the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, our four state museums in Santa Fe, eight historic sites statewide and the Office of Archaeological Studies.

Gift Planning One Gift, a Lifetime Investment
You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can advance our work of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation and the instituions we support.
Beneficiary Designations
A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to make a gift to support our cause. You can designate the Museum of New Mexico Foundation and the institutions we support as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account or your life insurance policy.
IRA Charitable Rollover
An IRA rollover allows people age 70 and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA.
IRA to Gift Annuity Rollover
You may be looking for a way to help further our mission and enhance your income. If you are 70 or older, you can make a one-time IRA rollover to fund a charitable gift annuity and receive fixed payments for life.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is a great way you can make a gift to the Museum of New Mexico Foundation and to benefit the institutions we support and yourself. You transfer your cash or property to our organization and we promise to make fixed payments to you for life at a rate based on your age.

Gifts of Assets

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to the Museum of New Mexico Foundation and designated to the institutions we support.
Gifts of Art
Donating gifts of art is a wonderful way to benefit our museum system. If you are interested in donating art, you can contact us and we will put you in touch with the appropriate staff member at the museum. They can work with you on which pieces from your collection they would like to accession into the state museum.
