Planned Giving

The Museum's planned giving program provides a variety of creative and flexible ways for you to support the Museum now and into the future, while fulfilling your own charitable and financial goals at the same time. You can make a gift that the Museum can use right away, or a gift that will benefit the Museum at some point in the future. You can also make a gift that will provide income back to you. By making a planned gift, you will join a special group of supporters who have made an investment in the future of the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum, and ensure the continuation of the Museum's work for generations to come.

There are many ways to make an estate gift to the Museum. We will be happy to work with you and your advisor to determine the one that is right for you.


Bequests are the most popular type of deferred gift. You can include a gift in your original will or revocable living trust or add one later by an amendment. The gift can be for a specific amount of money, specific piece of property, or a percentage of your estate. Once family, friends, and other loved ones are cared for, the Museum can find a place as part of your life's legacy. The following is sample bequest language to share with your attorney:

I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum [witten amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.
