Legacy Gifts

Ignite Curiosity for Generations

Help inspire generations of future innovators by leaving a legacy gift to Pacific Science Center. Planned gifts enable everyone to support PacSci as these future gifts do not impact your current financial security. Best of all, planned gifts represent a permanent statement of your values and leave a lasting legacy for your family and the community.

If you believe in the importance of access to science and fueling a passion for discovery, then you may wish to consider including a gift to PacSci in your estate plans. Explore the opportunities to make a planned gift below and learn more about The Arches, a community that celebrates those who have remembered PacSci through legacy planning. Contact Donor Relations for a no-obligation illustration of your tax and financial benefits from these gifts and to explore if these options are right for you.

Gifts in Your Will of Trust

Make a statement of your values and support PacSci in your will or trust. Your attorney can include the necessary language in your will, a codicil to your will, or your revocable living trust.

Beneficiary Designations

Make PacSci a beneficiary of a bank, brokerage account, retirement plan, life insurance policy or annuity. Assets in these accounts are passed to beneficiaries without going through probate.
