Making a planned gift—whether by including a bequest to the Museum in your will or by naming CHM as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund—provides essential support for the Museum’s future. Planned gifts can offer significant tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.
To recognize your commitment, CHM would be honored to include you as a member of the Grace Hopper Legacy Society, a distinguished group that celebrates the generosity of donors who contribute to the Museum in this special way. Learn more about the levels and benefits of the Grace Hopper Legacy Society.
There are a number of other flexible and creative estate and gift planning options available to you. Learn more about other ways to give a planned gift.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906−January 1, 1992) was a force to be reckoned with. Renowned for her mathematical prowess, wit, and leadership, Hopper worked on the earliest computers and quickly developed advanced software programs and tools to make programming computers easier.
By including CHM in your estate plans, you may become a member of the prestigious Grace Hopper Legacy Society, aligning your support with the values that guided Hopper and that guide CHM: hard work, lifelong learning, and passion in all we do.
