Planned Giving

Make SAMA Part of Your Legacy

Passionate about supporting the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art? Want to ensure that we can continue our mission well into the future? Planned gifts help ensure that SAMA will remain a vibrant source of inspiration for generations to come. Your gift can support any aspect of the Museum – expansion and care of the collection, curatorial research and exhibition, statewide educational initiatives; capital improvements to the buildings and sustaining our operational funding that ensures our collection is protected, the lights are on and the doors are open. SAMA is committed to developing planned gifts that are meaningful to each donor and tailored to their financial and estate-planning goals.

The Museum strongly encourages you to consult with your financial advisor and/or legal counsel for more information to make a planned gift.


Planned giving has to do with money a donor will lose anyway (taxes, estate taxes, etc.) but it is a process that the donor can control. Planned giving can help achieve one’s philanthropic goals without detracting from financial goals—sometimes augmenting them.
