Planned Giving

Has John McConnell or the EUREKA! McConnell Science Museum made a lasting impact on your life, or the life of someone you love? You can leave your own enduring imprint at EUREKA! by helping to ensure our future with a planned gift. No matter what kind of bequest you are considering, there are so many ways to shape your legacy.

A bequest is one way to leave a legacy gift to EUREKA!. A bequest is simply a gift you make through your will or trust which indicates your desire to leave something of value toward EUREKA!'s future work. A charitable bequest can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the value of your total estate, a particular asset, a gift of stock or life insurance, or even real estate.

A planned gift may also be made through your IRA, a qualified retirement plan, life insurance, or a trust, and your gift may be a percentage of your estate or a stated dollar amount. Some planned gifts can even provide an income stream to you or the person you designate, and may generate a current income tax deduction for you as the donor. In many cases, making a charitable planned gift can help your loved ones offset estate taxes.

Gifts of all shapes and sizes are welcome. For more information about planned giving opportunities at EUREKA! please contact Executive Director Jenn Moore at or call 970-248-2120.
