Legacy Giving

Making a legacy gift to Discovery Center Museum is a powerful way to demonstrate your lasting support of the museum’s mission to create opportunities for joyful learning and discovery through hands-on experiences in the sciences and arts.

One on the easiest ways to make a legacy gift is through your will. Working with your attorney, you can provide specific instructions in your will for establishing a bequest. One of the greatest benefits of a Charitable Bequest is that it does not affect your financial position since it is fulfilled only after you no longer need the funds.

You can change lives for generations to come with these words:

"I leave (% of estate, $ amount, etc.) to the Discovery Center Museum, an Illinois nonprofit corporation with Tax ID 36-3292135, to support the Discovery Center Museum in Rockford, Illinois."

Consult your attorney, tax advisor and/or financial planner to make certain a planned gift is the right choice for you and your family.
