The Arts and Education Council depends on its generous supporters to ensure that exciting arts and educational experiences are accessible to wide audiences throughout our region. If you would like to explore ways that your planned gift can help keep the arts alive for generations to come, A&E offers a variety of tools to help you make the best choice for you.

Your gift will ensure that our region's arts and cultural treasures thrive for generations to come.  The Arts and Education Council's Arts Legacy Society members have made estate and planned gifts that provide tax benefits while supporting our St. Louis arts community.  A&E's Arts Legacy Society page provides ample information about the types of assets that make the best planned gifts and you can also learn about gifts of cash, securities and property.
