Make a Gift to the Museum in Your Will or Trust

Sample Will or Living Trust Language

Leaving a gift in your will or revocable living trust is a wonderful way to ensure that your support of the Freer and Sackler impacts generations to come.

You may designate a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to the museum while leaving other assets to your family and friends.

There is no minimum requirement. Every gift counts.

To make a gift in your will or trust, follow these simple steps:

  • Provide your attorney with the following sample language: “I give [the residue of my estate], [__% of the residue of my estate], or [the sum of ___dollars] to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, for the benefit of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.”
  • Notify us so we can welcome you to the Freer and Sackler’s Legacy Society.
