Conservation professionals are responsible for the care and preservation of objects ranging from postage stamps to the Statue of Liberty; from treasured wedding gowns to the Declaration of Independence. Artifacts of the past help the public understand and celebrate history and identity. By preserving our cultural treasures, conservators help protect our heritage for future generations. For more than 40 years, the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works has been supporting conservation education, research, and outreach activities that increase understanding of our global cultural heritage.
Including FAIC in your estate planning is a great way to have lasting impact on the field and leave behind a legacy of support for conservation. Bequests and other forms of planned giving are the ultimate expression of a person's values.
You can name FAIC as the beneficiary through bequests, retirement funds, and insurance policies, and of life income gifts such as charitable remainder trusts and charitable remainder annuity trusts.
