Marion Koogler McNay Legacy Society
The McNay Legacy Society was founded in 2009 to recognize donors who have chosen
to remember the museum in their estate plans. The name was selected to honor Marion
Koogler McNay's charitable legacy. At her death in 1950, Mrs. McNay left
her collection of more than 700 works of art, along with a 24-room Spanish Colonial-revival
house, surrounding 23 acres, and an endowment to establish the first museum of
modern art in Texas.
The Legacy Society was created to honor donors for their commitment to the
McNay and the visual arts. Legacy society members understand the critical importance
of securing the McNay's future by providing gifts to support acquisitions,
exhibitions, conservation, education and other public programs. Their support
of the McNay extends far into the future, even beyond a lifetime of membership,
support and volunteer hours.
You can make a difference to the future of the McNay by planning now. Gift
planning uses tax laws to enable you to pursue your philanthropic goals while
minimizing your cost of giving and maximizing the benefits to yourself and your
family. You will have the satisfaction of allowing the McNay to plan for the
future realize cherished goals, maintain financial stability, and reach ever-increasing
levels of accomplishment.
Benefits of Membership
Members of the Marion Koogler McNay Legacy Society receive invitations to an
annual recognition event and other gatherings, and an opportunity to meet other
individuals with a common interest in the future of the museum. Members are
acknowledged in museum publications (name listed with member's permission).
