  • Bequests
  • Life Income Plans
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Retirement Plans or Life Insurance Policies
  • Real Estate

You Will Be Honored As a Member of The Tech Legacy
The Tech Museum of Innovation recognizes how important your legacy gift is to the effort to promote science and technology literacy for people of all ages—especially the young people who will be the innovators of tomorrow.

In recognition of your legacy gift, you will receive:
  • An invitation to an annual donor recognition event
  • The Tech's member e-newsletter, The Tech Insider
  • Acknowledgement in selected literature, newsletters, and annual reports
