Show Your Passion for the Future of Quilting After Your Lifetime
Have you devoted your life to quilting? Want to show your passion for the artform after you have passed. It’s easy to do with a beneficiary designation. Just name The National Quilt Museum as a beneficiary to receive assets such as retirement plans and life insurance policies after you’re gone. All you have to do is fill out a form that is entirely separate from your will. Your estate planner will walk you through it.
Not only is this an easy way to give, but its also flexible. You can always review and adjust your beneficiary designation anytime you want.
Making A Difference
With over 600 quilts in the collection of The National Quilt Museum, we are able to bring the work of today’s quilters to audiences that may never be in Paducah. Through our travelling exhibit program, museums of all kinds around the world are able to borrow quilts from the museum for exhibits. Over 100,000 people annually enjoy museum exhibits at museums and events around the world. We hope to continue to expand this program bringing quilting to more people than ever year after year.
