Planned Giving

For many members and friends of the Detroit Institute of Arts, a planned gift illustrates their appreciation and commitment to the museum's collection and programs and their desire to provide stability and continuity to one of the nations finest art museums. In addition to supporting the DIA's endowment, planned giving often provides significant financial benefits to the donor. These benefits include substantial tax deductions and income to donors or their loved ones, as well as other benefits available depending on a donor's circumstances and objectives. The DIA's development staff can help donors choose the options that work best for them.
