“I give, devise, and bequeath to Mystic Seaport Museum, Inc., located in Mystic, CT, or its successor organization, a nonprofit organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, $______.”

–OR–

“I give, devise, and bequeath to Mystic Seaport Museum, Inc., located in Mystic, CT, or its successor organization, a nonprofit organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code,  ______ percent of my estate.”

After consulting with your family, as well as your attorney and financial planner, you may decide to give a fixed dollar amount or a fixed percent of your total estate.

Mystic Seaport thanks you for your support.
