Planned Giving


Planned Giving Options

Thank you for your interest in planned giving and Acadiana Center for the Arts. Planned gifts are long-range contributions, either of a donor's current financial plan, retirement plan, or estate plan, that will ensure the longevity of our organization and sustain our important work with art and culture in Acadiana. Consult with your financial planner or attorney on how you can make a planned gift or contact the Center for more information.


Stocks, Bonds and Other Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities – stocks, bonds, and mutual funds – are one of the most common forms of planned gifts. A gift of stocks, bonds and/or other securities will be accepted only upon approval of the Executive Director. We will work in conjunction with a broker to determine the appropriate value for all tax purposes.


AcA Endowment

Our endowment was created to help with stability and sustainability for Acadiana Center for the Arts. Consider providing a gift that will keep on giving well into the future, and/or the opportunity to fund the needs of the moment such as operating and outreach funding.


Bequests and Estate Plan Gifts

You may make a bequest or gift through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming Acadiana Center for the Arts as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. The amount left to the Center can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given.
