Planned Giving


The simplest way to make a planned gift is through a bequest in your will. You may direct a bequest to support a specific acquisition fund for art or to endow a specific program or collection. Undesignated bequests allow the museum to use the funds where they are most needed.

Retirement Plan Assets

Bequeathing retirement assets to the museum allows you to fulfill your charitable objectives while preserving more of your estate’s value for family members. Designating the museum as the beneficiary of your retirement account may help your estate bypass multi-tier tax exposures, preserve the value of your estate, and protect your heirs from potential tax burdens.

Life Insurance

Giving a life insurance policy is a great way to transform a modest gift into a dramatic one. You can transfer ownership of a fully paid policy to the museum, reassign ownership and beneficiary status for a policy on which premiums are still being paid, or establish a new policy and designate the museum as applicant, owner, and beneficiary.

Gifts of Art

The Sublette County Historical Society and the Museum of the Mountain Man welcomes the gift of art and artifacts to enhance our collection.  Please contact our Executive Director or our Curator at 307-367-4101 to discuss the process.
