Giving Opportunities

For over 75 years, Hambidge has quietly been the source of inspiration for many who bring art and science into our lives. Each year over 100 exceptionally talented individuals call our 600-acre creative sanctuary home. They write, draw, dance, sing, paint, design, develop and create significant works of imagination that challenge us and move us all forward.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization planting seeds of inspiration, Hambidge depends upon the generosity of its members and patrons.

Gifts of Stock

Memorial and Honor Gifts
Gifts made in memory or in honor of a friend, family member, or significant member of the Arts community.

A gift provided for in your will that may be a percentage of your estate, the residual of the estate, a certain item, or specific dollar amount. Estate taxes may be reduced through a bequest.

Charitable Remainder Trusts
You may wish to name Hambidge as a recipient of a remainder trust, which provides either a fixed or variable life income for you and your family. Part of the trust qualifies for an income deduction, and at the death of the last beneficiary, the assets of the trust would be distributed to the Hambidge Center.

Charitable Lead Trusts
This trust allows you to pass on assets to family members with significant estate and gift tax savings, while allowing The Hambidge Center to benefit from the income during your lifetime.
