Planned Giving Council

The Planned Giving Council is a group of dedicated estate planning professionals (attorneys, certified public accountants, bankers, insurance professionals, and other financial advisors) who advise the Cleveland Museum of Art Planned Giving Office on trends in the profession and serve as ambassadors of the museum’s mission to the broader community. Where clients show interest, advisors assist in bridging the charitable intentions of their clients with the needs of the museum. The museum will collaborate with the advisors and donors to make charitable giving a meaningful and satisfying experience.
