Planned Giving

Abbe : Support : Giving : Planned Giving

Long-range charitable gift arrangements are often referred to as "planned gifts." Making a planned gift to the Abbe Museum is a special way to structure your giving to help support the mission of the Abbe to promote the understanding and appreciation of Maine's Native American culture, history and archaeology. With planned giving options, everyone wins; you provide for our needs now or later, and we provide for your needs now. We encourage you to explore the possibilities and opportunities for gift planning with your legal and tax advisors.
