Planned Giving

MAM is ready and willing to assist donors at any age in planning their legacy. Planned giving can help you fulfill your philanthropic dream of supporting contemporary art. When donors leave a gift to MAM in a will or other estate plans, they are creating a lasting legacy for contemporary art that will inspire tomorrow’s artists and ensure MAM’s mission for generations to come. For 45 years, MAM had modeled leadership in supporting contemporary art and artists. If you have included MAM in your estate plans, informing us of those plans enables us to properly express our gratitude. 

Please read the options below and contact Jessica Noe, advancement officer, when you're ready to discuss your plans. We look forward to hearing from you!


Bequests are gifts made to the museum through your will or trust. You can give a specific dollar amount or asset, a percentage, residue, or balance of your estate, or a beneficiary designation of certain assets. Bequests are one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an adviser, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to the Missoula Art Museum as part of your estate plan.

Gift Annuities

A charitable or deferred gift annuity is a gift that allows an individual or couple to make a tax-deductible gift to MAM and receive lifetime income payments in return. When the donor(s) pass away, the museum receives the remainder of the gift.  Please contact us to discover the many benefits a charitable gift annuity provides both you and the museum. The development office can field your questions and provide confidential proposals for you without obligation. Learn more about planned giving options via the Montana Community Foundation.
