A Lasting Legacy

Each year, LACMA receives support from many thoughtful individuals through their estates. These gifts provide a lasting legacy for the museum and the community.

You do not have to be wealthy to leave a legacy. Planned giving can be as simple as including a bequest provision in your will or naming LACMA as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. No matter the size, your gift will help ensure that coming generations will enjoy the arts and programming you value today.

We invite you to join others by remembering LACMA as you plan for the future.
