A legacy gift is a planned contribution that designates some part of an individual’s estate as a donation to a nonprofit/foundation. Donors can allocate a specific amount of money to give after they die, such as a lump sum or a percentage of their total wealth, or they can choose to give the remainder of their estate to a nonprofit after all of their other bequests are paid.

Making a legacy gift to the Minnesota Architectural Foundation (MAF) enables you to create a powerful philanthropic legacy by investing in excellence, leadership, discovery, and equity in the profession of architecture in Minnesota.

The simplest way to bequest a gift is through your will and a living trust or beneficiary designation.

Your planned gift can be designated to MAF in general or towards a specific named fund – review the MAF named funds and information. The MAF information to include is listed here:

Informing MAF of your intentions helps us to respect your planned gift, honor your legacy, and inspire others to follow your kind example. Your specific intentions/gift will remain confidential.
