Leave a Legacy

The National Mississippi River Musuem & Aquarium, a property of the Dubuque County Historical Society, recognizes donors who have made a planned gift to the institution.

To ensure the history, culture and life of the Mississippi River and rivers of America is preserved for future generations, we ask you to consider making a planned gift to the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium. You can support the Aquarium’s longevity while achieving your financial, philanthropic, and estate-planning goals. We will work with you and your professional advisor to create an appropriate gift plan that helps you leave your legacy.

There are many ways to make a planned gift to the Museum & Aquarium. Deferred gift options include:

  • Bequests in your Will or Living Trust
  • Naming the Aquarium as a Retirement Plan Beneficiary
  • Gifts from a Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Gifts from a Charitable Lead Trust
  • Gifts of Life Insurance
