Losing a loved one is difficult, but many families find comfort in honoring those they have lost by requesting memorial contributions be made to the Asian Art Museum. You can invite others to give by asking the person arranging the funeral or memorial service to insert the following phrase in the obituary notice:
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be made to the Asian Art Museum Foundation, 200 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 or online at www.asianart.org/regular/donate.
When Sarah Park's father, Joseph, passed away, she knew she wanted to do something to honor his life. She remembered that during his lifetime he volunteered at the museum. So Sarah decided to make a gift to the museum in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at the museum thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
