The New England Aquarium opened its doors 50 years ago, ensuring a legacy of education and engagement around ocean conservation. Now, imagine your legacy.

There are many ways you can create a lasting legacy that will benefit the Aquarium while also helping you reach your personal goals, whether they are to honor the memory of a loved one, receive important tax benefits, or make a more substantial gift for the future than you can afford right now.

Planned giving vehicles can take many forms, including bequests, living trusts, beneficiaries on your life insurance or retirement accounts, minimum annual distributions from your IRA, or charitable annuities and trusts. We’re happy to work with you and your financial advisors to help you achieve your desired impact and focus.

If you have already arranged a gift to the Aquarium in your estate plan, please let us know so we can thank you and invite you to special events throughout the year!
