Legacy Circle

Join us today as we ensure that great art, big ideas, and courageous conversations will always happen at the Brooklyn Museum. Become a member of our Legacy Circle, a group of dedicated supporters who have included the Brooklyn Museum in their will or other estate plans in support of our mission to create inspiring encounters with art that expand the ways we see ourselves, the world, and its possibilities. Your support will help ensure future generations have the opportunity to find inspiration at the Brooklyn Museum, as have so many others since 1825.

If you have already provided for the Brooklyn Museum in your will, please let us know so we may be sure that your legacy plans are honored per your wishes when the time comes. To alert us to an existing gift or to begin planning your gift, please contact Hope O’Reilly, Deputy Director and Chief Development Officer, at 718.501.6470 or hope.oreilly@brooklynmuseum.org.

In thanks for your planned gift commitment, we will be pleased to offer you the following:

  • Listing as a member of the Legacy Circle on the Museum’s website and in printed materials (name only, no giving level, and you may indicate your interest in remaining anonymous)
  • Privilege to name a seat in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium (limited availability)
  • Customized invitations to VIP events and receptions

Please consult with a financial or tax professional to determine the most appropriate way to include the Brooklyn Museum in your estate plan—whether through a bequest, retirement plan, IRA, life insurance policy, donor-advised fund, or another vehicle of your choosing.
