Welcome to your resource for charitable gift planning!If we could use sand dollars to fund our research, we'd be out scouring the beaches of the world from dawn to dusk. But since we can't, we look to you.
In these difficult economic times, many cannot support their favorite charities as they once did. One alternative is to remember Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in your estate planning program. By doing so, you help make a difference today by protecting our future tomorrow.
Including Mote in your estate planning provides an important legacy that helps us continue in our mission for our children and our children's children. It also helps you reduce your tax burden by providing a charitable deduction equal to the value of the bequest at the time of your death and ensures that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes.
