Generosity for Generations

When you contribute to MOSAC, you are contributing to over 75 years of science education and “a-ha” moments for people of all ages across the Sacramento region and Northern California.

You can keep MOSAC’s future secure for another 75-plus years by planning for a special legacy gift. These generous donations support future generations of scientists and science-literate adults, and provide valuable resources to support MOSAC’s mission and ability to make a difference in the lives of future generations.

How to Give

If you would like to extend your support for MOSAC and make a lasting impact with a legacy gift, there are several gift arrangements to choose from — Your gift can be made for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or specific property, including real estate, stocks, etc.

Legacy gifts may provide unrestricted operating support or can be directed to specific programs and initiatives. To ensure that your wishes will be properly followed and recognized, we encourage you to share your final will provision with MOSAC.

Estate Planning

One easy way to make MOSAC part of your estate plan is to name the SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity as a beneficiary of your donor advised fund, IRA, life insurance policy, or retirement plan.

Simply request a change of beneficiary form from your plan administrator or insurance carrier, then return the completed form to them. MOSAC would greatly appreciate a copy of the change for its records; this will ensure your wishes will be properly followed and recognized.

Bequests

You can leave a bequest to MOSAC in your will or living trust — Including MOSAC as a recipient of a percentage or specific dollar amount in your will is easy to do. Each individual situation is unique, but you may find the sample language below helpful.
