Giving For Years To Come

By making a legacy gift, you will help ensure the vitality of the Putnam for generations to come, while often receiving tax benefits and, in some cases, income for life. Legacy giving options include:

  • Gifts made through wills
  • Gifts of life insurance
  • Gifts of retirement plan assets
  • Gifts of stock
  • Charitable gift annuities, which, in addition to advancing the Putnam’s mission, can provide you with an ongoing stream of income.  

We’d be happy to work with you and your financial advisor. For more information or to let us know that you’ve already included the Putnam in your plans, please contact Betsy Matt Turner, Vice President of Strategic Advancement, at 563-336-7303 or bturner@putnam.org.

Please Note: The Museum & Science Center will be closed for maintenance, cleaning, and updates January 8 -12.

We will resume normal hours on Saturday (1/13). Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support!
