Ninah Cummer - The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens

Ninah Cummer Legacy Society

Your Legacy. Their Future.

Include The Cummer in your estate plans to receive significant tax savings and make a lasting contribution to the Museum.

When The Cummer first opened its doors on November 11, 1961, the historic event was the achievement of someone who knew the importance of planned giving.  In her will, Ninah Cummer established a foundation to provide financial support, a reputable art collection, and a riverfront lot adorned with gardens to build an extraordinary institution.  She acknowledged that her family’s original bequest and endowment would be reliant upon contributions from others to maintain a place of beauty and culture for all.

The Ninah Cummer Legacy Society honors individuals who follow in Mrs. Cummer’s footsteps by making a planned gift to the Museum.

Art Education at The CummerAs a member of the Ninah Cummer Legacy Society, you will be instrumental in The Cummer’s future while also leaving a lasting legacy.  You may choose to support the Museum’s general operating endowment, or a more specified initiative.  All planned gifts will assist in providing countless generations with the opportunity to experience the magnificence of art, gardens and education at The Cummer.

Below are some of the many options you may consider when planning a legacy gift at the Museum:

  • Charitable Bequest
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Retirement Plan Gift
  • Life Insurance
  • Gifts of Art

 

Attorneys, accountants or financial planners often have the ability to provide insight into your planned giving options and how these options will work in your specific financial situation.  These professionals may also project how each option would affect your taxes, savings and legacy planning.

As a member of the Ninah Cummer Legacy Society, you will receive:

  • Special invitation to an annual gathering of Ninah Cummer Legacy Society members
  • Access to The Cummer staff and an opportunity to schedule a private tour of the Museum
  • Recognition in Cummer publications
  • Recognition on The Cummer’s annual donor wall
  • Annual print communication from The Cummer
     

How to Join:

Join the Ninah Cummer Legacy Society by simply notifying The Cummer that you have remembered the Museum in your estate plans.  Contact Emily Magevney, Individual Donor Manager, at 904.899.6027 or emagevney@cummer.org to discuss any of the following options:

  • I have included The Cummer in my will or estate plans and would like to be recognized as a member of the Ninah Cummer Legecy Society.
