Planned Giving Via Estate Plan
or Retirement Account

Securing the future of independent cinema has never been more accessible.

Consider including the MSP Film Society in your estate plan and become a part of our legacy. Planning your gift is straightforward, and here’s how:

  • Residuary Bequest: You can designate a percentage (e.g., “_____% of my estate”) to ensure your contribution remains proportional to your estate’s value.
  • Specific Bequest: Alternatively, you can specify a fixed dollar amount (e.g., “The sum of $________”) for your gift.

By choosing a residuary bequest, your generosity adapts with your estate, eliminating the need for frequent will updates. We recommend using the following language for your bequest:

“I give to MSP Film Society, EIN 41-1802905, a Minneapolis, Minnesota nonprofit organization recognized as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, [a  percent of my residuary estate] or [the sum of $___] to be used for [its general purposes] or [endowment].”

To ensure your wishes are carried out seamlessly, please discuss your plans with your attorney and/or financial planner.

If you choose to notify the MSP Film Society of your estate plans, please contact:
