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.
Benefits of the Burritt Legacy Society
Legacy Society members names will be highlighted 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.
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 individual 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.
