PLANNED GIVING AT YADDO

Include Yaddo in Your Estate Plans. Formed in 1999 to honor Yaddo's founders and add to their legacy, The Trask Society is composed of donors who have included in their estate plans a gift for The Corporation of Yaddo, such as a bequest in a will, a beneficiary designation of life insurance or retirement plan proceeds, or other forms of planned gifts. These arrangements often yield significant tax benefits for donors and their heirs. A bequest to Yaddo may memorialize a friend or relative, or carry in perpetuity the name of the donor. In addition to providing unrestricted funding to Yaddo, a donor may designate funds for programs or activites such as artists' residencies or restoration projects. No minimum amount is required for membership in The Trask Society. Members are invited to special programs and events and, with their permission, are acknowledged in publications for their enduring commitment to artistic excellence.
