How It Works

Young family with kidsMeet Tom and Margaret. When they got married and set up a will, they included a $75,000 gift to the Met. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Margaret decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.

They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that the Met received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Margaret now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and art form they love.
