Members of the Richard B. Gump Society are dedicated, forward-thinking donors who have included the Asian Art Museum in their estate plans. Through these gifts, Gump Society members create enduring legacies that provide for the financial security of the museum and ensure that the collections, exhibitions, and programs continue for future generations.
Prominent art collector Richard B. Gump is most often associated with Gump's, a luxury San Francisco retailer noted for its early recognition and support of Asian art. He also served as a commissioner for the Asian Art Museum for many years and was one of the first to leave a generous legacy gift to the museum.
Gump Society members can direct gifts to a number of areas depending on their interests, including:
- Museum's highest priorities
- Exhibitions, programs, and publications
- Conservation and collections
- Named endowed funds (gift minimum applies)
Richard B. Gump Society members are honored at an annual event, invited to special events and recognized in the museum's donor report.
