The Irene S. Wischer Society

Your Legacy at the MSV

The Irene S. Wischer Society honors the generosity of donors who have designated an estate gift for the MSV.

Irene Wischer, a long-time supporter of the MSV, was the first person to make a legacy gift because she understood the importance of sustaining the Museum for generations to come. By her example, numerous other individuals have made provisions for the MSV in their estate planning.

Estate gifts can be a tax-wise way to give.  There are several options for creating a planned gift in your estate, among them: 

  • Outright gifts of cash/stock
  • Gifts of Heritage
  • Retirement plans and annuities
  • Charitable lead trusts
  • Charitable remainder trusts

These gifts should be considered within the full framework of your estate, with the guidance of an attorney or tax advisor. 

If you would like to join The Irene S. Wischer Society, please contact Sherry Hudson, Senior Director, Institutional Advancement, at 540-662-1473, ext. 211 or [email protected]. By including the MSV in your estate plans, you are helping to secure the MSV’s future as the state’s largest art park and the region’s largest cultural community center.
