Memorial and Honorary Gifts to the Museum of Arts and Sciences can be given in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one. Each year, we are privileged to receive gifts honoring the lives, accomplishments, and memories of community leaders, art patrons, educators, and friends of the Museum. Your tribute will be acknowledged with a card sent to the honoree or his/her family that will include your name and address, but not the amount of your gift. Your tribute will also be acknowledged in our MUSE publication, and you will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible gift.
In the case of memorial gifts, families may want to suggest in the obituary that donations be sent to the Museum using language such as this:
“In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Checks should be mailed to Museum of Arts and Sciences, 4182 Forsyth Road, Macon, GA 31210.”
Most Memorial and Honorary Gifts are made to the Museum’s Annual Fund, which keeps our educational programs strong and our admission fees affordable for thousands of families. Larger tribute gifts can be used to purchase an acquisition for the Permanent Collection or establish a “Named Support” or “Endowed Fund.”
For more information about establishing a named fund at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, please contact the Executive Director at (478) 477-3232 extension 302.
