Planned Gifts

Giving shouldn’t be a challenge. Contribute to Adventure Science Center’s future by planning for a special kind of gift. Although cash contributions to the Center are always appreciated, there are other creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the Center. We’re here to ensure that the way you give is right for you—simple, affordable, and meaningful.

  • One of the simplest ways to support the Center’s future, a bequest provides a gift for the Adventure Science Center in your will and cost you nothing during your lifetime. Including bequests in your will is an unobtrusive and inexpensive way to give.
  • Appreciated securities are an excellent way of funding many of these gifts, often unlocking greater income while eliminating, or at least reducing, capital gains tax. (See the Planned Giving Glossary for a definition of the capital gains tax and other relevant terms.)
  • Another easy way to include the Center in your estate plan is to name Adventure Science Center as a beneficiary of your stock, donor advised fund, retirement plan, IRA, or life insurance policy. Doing so is as simple as filling out a beneficiary designation form from your plan provider or administrator.

If the kinds of planned gifts listed here don’t seem right for you, please contact Susan Earl Hosbach, CFRE, at (615) 401-5054 or shosbach@adventuresci.org and tell us how you would like to give. We have many options available that can be adjusted for you.

Your planned gift enables Adventure Science Center to continue to ignite curiosity and inspire the life-long discovery of science for generations to come. Donors who contribute through a planned gift or make a provision for the Adventure Science Center in their estate plans are eligible to join the Legacy Society, a group that recognizes the generosity of donors who contribute to the Center in this special way.
