Armory Legacy Society

Give the Gift of Art for Generations to Come!

You do not need to be wealthy to leave a meaningful legacy at Armory Center for the Arts. Make your core values known by joining the Armory Legacy Society and making a planned gift to ensure access to meaningful art-making experiences for generations to come. 

Members of our Legacy Society are generous and forward-thinking donors who support our long-term mission to transform lives and communities through the power of art. In addition to supporting our work through your generous annual donations, naming the Armory as a beneficiary in your will and living trust significantly contributes to the sustainability of the Armory in the long term and may offer you significant tax savings. 


One of the easiest ways to help involves simply naming the Armory as a beneficiary in your will and living trust. A bequest may be for a particular dollar amount or percentage of your estate. Estate tax savings may be significant. You can name Armory Center for the Arts in your long-range plans including your will or trust by providing your advisor or financial account administrator with the following information:

  • I give and bequeath to Armory Center for the Arts, tax ID # 95-2907884, located at 145 North Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91103, [the sum of $ or %, or description of property] to be used for its general tax-exempt purposes, without other restriction as to use.

Here are other ways you can contribute to the sustainability of the Armory in the long term. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor to discuss the tax implications of these options.

Life Insurance Policy and Retirement Assets

Often overlooked by donors, naming Armory Center for the Arts as a partial beneficiary of these assets can provide support for our organization.

Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts allow you to leave a gift in the care of Armory Center for the Arts while earning income for yourself during your lifetime. The two most popular life income gifts are charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities. 

Complex Gifts

If you are a business owner, own real property, or have any other type of complex asset, giving options exist that can both help Armory Center for the Arts and benefit your family financially.

We are happy to consult with you and/or your advisors to discuss these and other giving options. To discuss membership in the Armory Legacy Society, please contact Andrew Gould at (626) 792-5101 x112 or 

Legacy Society members become a special part of the Armory donor family. You will be also honored with recognition on our website, discounts for Armory studio classes, recognition in publications including our member and donor newsletter, and an invitation to an annual Legacy Society reception.
