Planned Giving


What will be your legacy?

If it’s important to you that Maine’s special cultural heritage is preserved for the benefit of future generations, please consider including Maine Maritime Museum in your estate planning.

Planned gifts are typically classified by the asset that is transferred (such as life insurance or real estate) or by the legal vehicle used (like a will or trust). Common forms of acceptable gifts are cash and publicly traded stock, or a percentage or specified dollar amount of a life insurance policy or retirement account.

Most commonly, an individual will name Maine Maritime Museum in his or her will, bequeathing a set dollar amount or set percent of the estate to benefit the museum. (e.g., I hereby give and bequeath the sum of $25,000 to Maine Maritime Museum; or I order and direct one-half of my estate to be distributed to Maine Maritime Museum.) Sample Codicil

The museum established the Capt. W.J. Lewis Parker Leadership Society to recognize and acknowledge those individuals who have made planned gifts benefiting the museum. Join the Parker Society today by letting Manager of Development Operations Rebecca Roche know of your estate plans.
