A planned gift offers a variety of options for you to give through your estate during your lifetime or through your will. If you do make a gift through your will or trust, you help guarantee our future financial strength without affecting your current asset balance or cash flow. You will leave a legacy of support for the vital training that Boston Arts Academy provides to the city’s next generation of Artists, Scholars, and Global Citizens.

This is a gift made through your will or living trust and can be the easiest gift to make to Boston Arts Academy Foundation because it costs you nothing during your lifetime. You also can update or change it if circumstances change. Bequests are one of the easiest and most popular gift plans. Often a bequest is simply a set amount or percentage of an estate set aside to make a gift to Boston Arts Academy Foundation.

Retirement Plans
You name Boston Arts Academy Foundation as the beneficiary of a portion or all of your IRA, 401(k), or other retirement account. When the time comes, the amount designated passes directly to Boston Arts Academy Foundation, income- and estate-tax free.

You transfer publicly traded securities that you have owned for more than one year to Boston Arts Academy Foundation. We sell the securities and apply the proceeds to the charitable purpose(s) that you designate. You claim an income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities and also avoid capital gains tax on the securities’ appreciation.

I’m here to answer all of your questions from how to give from your donor advised fund to setting up a bequest. Contact me at or (617) 513-3601.
