Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving generally refers to donations that support the museum and provide important financial and estate planning benefits to the donor. Individual donors and families who have committed a legacy gift to the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts are recognized as Townsend Wolfe Society members.

Townsend Wolfe Society members have the distinct honor of impacting the arts and our community for generations to come. AMFA accepts a variety of legacy gifts, from bequests to beneficiary designations on retirement accounts and life insurance, to charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to create a plan that will help realize your families’ needs and philanthropic intentions. The Townsend Wolfe Society does not involve dues or solicitations, but it does allow the museum to thank and recognize new society members at annual recognition events and/or in year-end publications. For more information about a Legacy Gift to the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, please contact the development team.
