Planned Giving

USC Pacific Asia Museum receives support from many thoughtful individuals through their estates. These gifts provide essential support for the museum’s future and mission to further intercultural understanding through the arts of Asia and the Pacific Islands.

You do not have to be wealthy to leave a legacy. Planned giving can be as simple as including a bequest provision in your will or naming USC Pacific Asia Museum as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. Planned gifts can also offer tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.

Sponsor a Program

USC Pacific Asia Museum is pleased to offer our donors a full range of significant and permanent naming opportunities, providing a lasting legacy that underscores our donors’ ongoing commitment to the community and to Asian arts and culture. These include both permanent building recognition and program endowments as well as annual program support.

Naming opportunities may be secured through gifts in a variety of formats, including cash contributions, pledges, gifts of appreciated assets, or planned gifts and bequests. The Museum is delighted to work with our donors to develop giving strategies that maximize the tax advantages and meet personal requirements in order to achieve the desired contribution level.
