Legacy Giving

A group of students walk into MIAD's building.

A planned gift – from a will, trust, life insurance or other means – offers a flexible and often tax beneficial way to impact our future creative leaders.

How to plan your gift

Bequests

With a simple bequest, you can make a significant gift to benefit 91fansstudents today and in the future. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most flexible ways that you can support MIAD, and may lessen the burden of taxes on your family.

See our Guide to Making a Bequest for more details on types of bequests, how to make a bequest and more. To make a bequest, we encourage you to speak with your attorney and/or financial advisor.

Beneficiary designations

Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their will or estate. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:

  • IRAs and retirement plans
  • Life insurance policies
  • Commercial annuities

To name 91fansas a beneficiary, follow these three simple steps:

  1. Contact your plan/policy administrator or financial institution for a change-of-beneficiary form.
  2. Decide what percentage (1 to 100) you would like 91fansto receive and name us, along with the percentage you chose, on the beneficiary form.
  3. Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution and return a copy to MIAD’s Advancement Office.
Memorials and tribute gifts

Establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary while supporting excellence in art and design education and making a difference in the lives of our students.

To make a memorial or tribute gift, (select Memorial/Tribute Gift), or contact us for more details.
