Make a Lasting Impact with a Planned Gift

Making a planned gift is a thoughtful way to significantly contribute to the future of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and to create a legacy that will inspire visitors and art enthusiasts for generations to come. Your gift can help support the Guggenheim’s exhibitions, collection, and education programs, as well as offer many benefits to you, your spouse, or your family.

With your planned gift, you may receive financial or tax benefits and achieve much more with your donation than you may have thought was possible. The Guggenheim is pleased to accept many planned gift options, including:

Bequests are a simple way to create a legacy that will allow the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum to continue its mission to collect, conserve, and present the art of our time.

Gifts of Art

Gifts of art are a crucial way for the Guggenheim's art collection to continue to grow. Our permanent collections include gifts of art received over the past 50 years, beginning with Solomon R. Guggenheim's founding collection gift. More recently, the generosity of collectors and artists has allowed the museum to acquire masterworks by Louise Bourgeois, Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, and many others. Our curatorial staff gives careful consideration to gifts of art before we are able to accept them and all gifts of art must be approved by the Board of Trustees.

Please e-mail for more information.
