The Arch Society was established to honor and recognize those donors who set a standard in generosity through annual and cumulative giving in support of Burritt on the Mountain.
The Arch, a structure allowing one to span great spaces while supporting great weight, beautifully describes our donors who provide the support that allows Burritt to carry out our dynamic mission through education, arts, recreation, and preservation.
The Arch requires all its elements to give it strength and hold it together. With any part missing, the Arch fails. Arch Society members play an important part in making Burritt such a special place and a dynamic part of our thriving community. Much like the keystone of the Arch, the continued giving of our donors provides the apex of our support.
Levels and Benefits of the Burritt Arch Society
Legacy Society (NEW for 2022)
Legacy Society members are those who have made the decision to support Burritt in a lasting way through their estate plans. Legacy giving is a simple, powerful way to create a lasting impact ensuring that Burritt continues to be a healthy, thriving, and vital part of the community for future generations.
These members names will be shown in bold on the Welcome Center Donor Wall.
If the amount of the gift is shared, then cumulative giving and Legacy giving amounts will be added together and appropriately moved to that level of giving on the recognition signage. Do we want to do this or wait until gift is given? What if not a member?
Gifts that qualify for cumulative giving are cash donations to Burritt, the Burritt Museum Foundation, in-kind donations, and matching company gifts. Matching gifts will be credited to the company and the individual. Donations and sponsorships from companies will be credited to the company, not the induvial signing the check or authorizing the donation.
Call Gina Hurst, Development Director (256) 512 -5570 or Leslie Ecklund, CEO (256) 512-0144 with any questions you may have or to receive a copy of our Legacy Giving brochure. It is always advisable to seek council from your financial planner when making these decisions.
