Planned Giving

The MIA’s 100th Birthday Year in 2015 is truly an exciting time for the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and our entire community! As we celebrate our past, present, and future, we continue our commitment to our vision of inspiring wonder through the power of art, and to the amazing collection, exhibitions, and programs we offer to an expanding audience from throughout our community.

Remembering the MIA in your estate plan is an important and impactful way to help sustain and strengthen the museum for the next 100 years. The MIA is pleased to accept a variety of planned gifts, from bequests to beneficiary designations on retirement accounts and life insurance, to charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts. Our Advancement staff welcomes the opportunity to work with you to create a plan that will help realize your needs and philanthropic intentions.

Ways to Give

Many options exist for planned gifts to the museum. For donors who wish to include the MIA in their estate plans, the museum is pleased to accept contributions in the form of bequests, life income gifts such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities, as well as life insurance, real estate and closely held stock (on a case-by-case basis), and works of art.

Gifts of Art

By giving a work of art, it ensures that a cherished work will be in the best possible care and enjoyed by the public. Works of art may be donated during your lifetime or by bequest. Donating artwork, a form of tangible personal property, requires special attention. Although a work may be artistically significant, it may not be appropriate for the MIA’s Collection Plan.

If you are considering donating a work of art to the MIA, you should first contact the curator of the appropriate curatorial department.
