    Planned giving has played an important role in the history of the Worcester Art Museum. The Museum was founded by Stephen Salisbury III in 1896 and his bequest in 1905 established a solid foundation upon which to build. The generosity of individuals through planned gifts has helped to build a strong financial base through endowments and general operating support. Your planned gift will allow the Museum to continue building upon this base and support future initiatives.

    Members who have designated a planned gift to the Museum are recognized for their generosity and foresight by enjoying benefits such as invitations to special receptions and events, perpetual recognition in planned giving donor listings, and more.
