Making Your Gift a Lasting Legacy

Thomas Cole's creative life and art proves how one person's efforts can have lasting impact.  You, too, can follow in Cole's footsteps and create your own legacy with a planned lifetime or estate gift to the Thomas Cole Historic Site.  Your commitment will continue the preservation of Cole's home, studio and landscape, and help us expand awareness of his pivotal role in defining American art.

Whether a donor uses cash or other assets, such as appreciated stocks, real estate, or annuities, the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both the donor and charity.  Please consult your own financial or legal advisor before proceeding with any planned gift arrangement.  For more information about how to make a gift to the Thomas Cole Historic Site, please contact David Barnes, Associate Director, at (347) 610-3326.
