Contribute to the Center for Architecture’s future by planning for yours through a bequest in your Will or Trust. With a planned gift, you can:

  • Leave a legacy without giving up assets
  • Make a larger charitable gift than you thought possible
  • Take care of the financial needs of your family first

We are happy to work with you and your advisor to answer questions about your estate plans and help explore your options.

An outright bequest is fully tax-deductible for estate-tax purposes. Examples of bequest language are available here.

If you are thinking about making a planned gift to the Center for Architecture, please talk with your legal and financial advisor and contact Jesse Lazar, Deputy Director, at 212-358-6125 or
