Make a Bequest

Naming Corita Art Center as a beneficiary of direct funds or assets in your will or living trust is a common way to provide a planned gift. Bequests may be for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residual amount of your estate after all debts, expenses, and specific bequests have been paid and realized. Bequests can be made with gifts of cash, appreciated securities, or artwork. Bequest gifts will be unrestricted unless you designate them to specific program areas.

Tribute Gifts

You can help Corita Art Center build a bright future for the arts with a tribute gift honoring a loved one’s birthday, anniversary, or memory.

Retirement Account
