Planned Giving

Planned Giving -  Marian and Gene Amdahl
There was so much history involved in Gene´s career, and we want to preserve his story for those who will follow Gene´s entrepreneurial spirit. We want to make sure the legacy of Gene and other pioneers lives on, as well as the Computer History Museum. Gene has given much of himself to the industry, and the industry has in turn been very good to us. It is great to be able to give some of that back by supporting the Computer History Museum. Marian Amdahl

Computer history would not be the same without Gene Amdahl. Gene was the father of the IBM 360 and a successful entrepreneur of several companies, including the Amdahl Corporation. His influence is still felt today. Gene and Marian are longtime supporters of the Computer History Museum and recently took the next step in their giving by including the Museum in their estate plan. By making a bequest to the Museum, the Amdahls are ensuring that the legacy of Gene and other pioneers will endure for generations to come.

By including the Museum in your will or estate plan, you will be taking significant steps to ensure the legacy of computing is preserved forever and, in so doing, that your own legacy will also carry on. Planned gifts provide much-needed support for the Computer History Museum while potentially offering tax advantages to the donor.

The Museum´s Legacy Society enables you to do just that. Partners in the Legacy Society of the Computer History Museum will receive a lifetime membership, invitations to exclusive events, and a print copy of our award-winning CORE magazine. They will also be recognized in our print publications, our website, and on our donor wall.

We hope you will consider investing in the Museum´s long-term financial health by considering a planned gift. To become a Partner of the Legacy Society at the Computer History Museum, contact the Development Office at (650) 810-2722.

Representatives of the Computer History Museum cannot provide tax advice. You should seek counsel from your estate lawyer or CPA.

Unless otherwise specified, planned gifts will be directed where they are needed most.
