Gifts & Bequests
Gifts and Bequests play an important role in the success and growth of the Rockport Art Association. A gift of any size, either during your lifetime or through your will, enables us to continue to be one of the most important art groups in this country. Your support will help us to sustain and strengthen the RAA’s commitment to the exhibition and education of practicing artists, children, and adults who place great value on the arts. Gifts & Bequests to the RAA are exempt or deductible for income, gift and estate tax purposes. To those who wish to leave funds by will, the following format is suggested:
I give and bequeath to the Rockport Art Association of Rockport, MA incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and having it’s principle office in the Town of Rockport, the sum of ____________ Dollars for the general uses and purposes of the Rockport Art Association.
The Rockport Art Association regards the foregoing as the most desirable form since it permits the RAA to use the bequests in such ways as will best promote the art and educational activities for which it was organized. If a limited purpose or other restriction is desired, or if real estate or specific personal property is to be given, the form should be appropriately notified. Please consult your attorney for additional information. If we may be of any help in answering questions regarding contemplated gifts or bequests please do not hesitate to contact Abby Battis, Executive Director, at 978-546-6604.
