Tribute and Memorial Gifts

Many Gallery members and friends choose to honor or memorialize individuals through tribute gifts to the museum. These unique gifts both recognize friends and loved ones and support MAG’s mission. Each gift receives a special acknowledgment from the Director. Tributes should be directed to “Tribute Fund” at MAG’s address: 500 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607. For special memorial or naming opportunities please contact Joe Carney at 585.276.8941.

Planned Giving & Bequests

The Marion Stratton Gould Society

In the late 1930s, Mrs. Samuel Gould memorialized her daughter, Marion, through a major bequest to the Memorial Art Gallery for the purchase of artworks. Her generosity and vision have helped make the MAG an internationally recognized art museum. Now, in a time of government cutbacks and increased competition for corporate donations, planned giving is essential to our continued financial strength.

To recognize and thank others who have provided for the future of the museum, we have formed the Marion Stratton Gould Society. You can become a member of the Society by including the MAG in your estate or retirement plans, or by giving an irrevocable deferred gift that will pay you lifetime income.

We will be happy to work with you as you plan your giving. The information you choose to share with us is kept confidential, and we will maintain your anonymity if you wish.

If you would like more information on wills or other planned giving opportunities, or if you have already included MAG in your plans, please contact Joe Carney at 585.276.8941.
