Planned gifts can provide an excellent way for you to create a perpetual legacy of support in your area of passionate interest. The Penn Museum, working in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania’s Office of Gift Planning, can tailor bequests and structure gifts of stock, real estate, life insurance, or retirement plans to maximize tax savings for you while providing meaningful support for the Museum. Planned gifts to the Museum are recognized through membership in the Sara Yorke Stevenson Legacy Gift Circle, and in Penn’s Charles Custis Harrison Society.
If you would like to explore making a planned gift to support the Penn Museum, or have already included in the Museum in your estate plan but haven't yet notified us, we look forward to hearing from you. Please contact Jon Heisler, Assistant Director, Individual Gifts, at 215.898.9017 or
