Consider making a significant commitment to our community in the form of a bequest. The Emerson is deeply grateful to those friends who, through their will or living trust, make a gift to support the work of creativity and community art making, art appreciation and art education for future generations.

Because bequests to the Emerson are generally exempt from federal or state inheritance taxes, and subject to an unlimited deduction, you may find that a commitment through your will–combined with an outright pledge or a life income gift–results in a much larger donation than you might have thought. Please contact us and consult your tax advisor for assistance in establishing a legacy that will reflect your caring for our community.
