Meet Carol and Jeff. When they got married and created a will, they included a $50,000 gift to the Museum. As the family grew to include three children, Carol and Jeff decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.

They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that the Museum received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Carol and Jeff now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people they love, while safeguarding truth for future generations.
