A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals, maintain control of your assets, and benefit the Museum.
Make a substantial gift to The Corning Museum of Glass in the form of fixed annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost.
While you may transfer many of your assets through your will or living trust, a document called a beneficiary designation controls distribution of your retirement plans, life insurance policies, commercial annuities and a variety of financial accounts.
Donate your home, farm or a second home to the Museum and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.
A donor-advised fund can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. Might a donor-advised fund be right for you? Here’s how it works.
Receive immediate cash and make a gift to The Corning Museum of Glass by selling to us a valuable asset, such as real estate, for less than it is worth.
