Planned Giving

You don’t have to be an artist to create something beautiful.

Create a vibrant community of art and artists by establishing a legacy of support.

Why support Concord Art?

For almost a century, Concord Art’s mission has been to promote contemporary art and artists through exhibitions, education, and dynamic programming. You can enrich our cultural and creative community by including Concord Art in your estate plans. Through a planned gift, you can make a lasting impact helping to ensure that Concord Art continue to promote and sustain art and artists for another hundred years.

How can I create a legacy of support?

You can make a bequest through your will or trust or designate Concord Art as a beneficiary in other estate gifts such as retirement plans, donor-advised funds and life insurance policies.


A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It may take the form of a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or be a part of or the entire residual of your estate after other specific bequests have been determined. If you already have a will, you can readily add Concord Art to it with a codicil.

Other Estate Gifts

In addition to your will or trust, you can complete a beneficiary designation form with your financial institution to name Concord Art as a beneficiary of any of these accounts:

  • IRA’s
  • Life insurance policies
  • Donor-advised funds

EWR Legacy Circle

When you notify Concord Art of its inclusion in your estate planning, you will become a member of our EWR Legacy Circle–a welcome group of donors who have supported Concord Art with a truly lifetime gift.
