QUASAR LEGACY CIRCLE
Quasars are among the most luminous, powerful, energetic ad venerable objects known in the Universe, and that’s why we think they are a powerful symbol of our legacy giving program. Quasars symbolize the impact of individuals who have made the choice to support Chabot in a profoundly personal and meaningful way.
The Quasar Legacy Circle is a group of committed supports that have included Chabot Space & Science Center in their estate plans. In conveying your intent to leave a legacy gift to the Center, your generosity helps further the Center’s goals and strengthens our education programs in STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The beauty of a legacy gift is that, with careful planning, you can fund a substantial gift to Chabot Space & Science Center while still providing for your loved ones. You may also be able to realize an immediate charitable contribution deduction and either avoid or minimize capital gain taxes
How Can You Give?
Many options exist, but always consult your attorney or financial advisor before making any changes to your will, trust or other planned giving instrument.
Other ways to make a legacy gift through your will or trust:
Stocks and Bonds
Real Estate (home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch, or commercial property)
Retirement Assets (IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax deferred plan)
Retained Life Estate
Perhaps the easiest way to create a meaningful legacy is through a bequest in your will or trust. Designating Chabot Space & Science Center as a beneficiary in will, trust, life insurance or retirement fund makes you a partner in our long-term vision.
