Planned Giving

When you give to the Museum, you support our scientists' research on the planet's biodiversity. You are also creating tomorrow's scientists. Our teacher resources make each field trip a learning experience, our education outreach brings the science of discovery to schools all over LA.

Welcome to Planned Giving

Many individuals have found gift planning to be an excellent way to support the Natural History Museum while enjoying estate-planning opportunities that minimize federal and state taxes. The wide degree of flexibility permitted in arranging a gift plan while still obtaining favorable tax benefits makes such gifts popular estate-planning tools and a wonderful way to create a legacy.

The Natural History Museum established the Hildegarde Howard Society to honor and recognize benefactors who have included the Museum in their estate plans. Learn more about the Hildegarde Howard Society.
