Bequests Ways to Give

Keep your passion alive. The arts are often forgotten when writing a will.

The following types of gifts would come from individuals who have an estate commitment or have entered into a life contract with Bob Mizer Foundation. The generosity these individuals show during their lifetime will continue to provide support to our current and future programs for years to come.

Bob Mizer Foundation gratefully recognizes gifts made in memory or in honor of a friend, family member, or significant member of the Foundation community.

Bequest

A gift provided for in your will that may be a percentage of your estate, the residual of the estate, a certain item, or specific dollar amount. Estate taxes may be reduced through a bequest.

Friends and relatives are frequently unsure of what to do with artwork "outside of the mainstream". We have heard of dozens of instances where it is simply thrown in the trash to avoid embarrassment to family. Passing it on to the Bob Mizer Foundation is a legacy for yourself, and the wonderful photography that you have enjoyed.

The Bob Mizer Foundation is unique in its purpose, goals, and projects. Your bequest helps to insure the Foundation remains strong and healthy and a resource for new generations.


Charitable Remainder Trusts

You may wish to name Bob Mizer Foundation as a recipient of a remainder trust which provides either a fixed or variable life income for you and your family. Part of the trust qualifies for an income deduction, and at the death of the last beneficiary, the assets of the trust would be distributed to Bob Mizer Foundation.

For questions about giving to the Bob Mizer Foundation, please contact Dennis Bell, Executive Director,  from our contact page.
