Estate and Gift Planning

Planned Giving

The Computer History Museum (CHM) is supported by the generosity of people around the world who share our passion for preserving the legacy of technology and computing. Because of this shared vision, many have included CHM in their estate planning. If you enjoy a rich history of computing, please know there are ways to plan a meaningful gift and to reserve the right to change the gift if your needs change. Planning a gift that allows you to keep lifetime control of gift assets provides peace of mind because:

  • Assets are always available if and when you need them.
  • You satisfy your desire to support the Computer History Museum.

Making a planned gift—whether by including a bequest to the Museum in your will or by naming CHM as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund—provides essential support for the Museum’s future. Planned gifts can offer significant tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.
