Leaving a Legacy – Planned Giving

Make sure that arts will always endure.


The Newburyport Art Association has been a large part of the cultural life of Newburyport and the region for many years.  Providing a venue for artist and visitors to advance the visual arts is the NAA’s primary mission.  Through it’s Exhibitions, Educational offerings and Outreach programs it has become a valuable community asset.

We are, therefore, asking you to take part and help in this mission by remembering the NAA in your estate planning.

Estate planning allows you to:

  • Honor your personal beliefs and passions by making your wishes known
  • Benefit a charitable organization while still caring for your loved ones
  • Help ensure that the future of the arts in the Newburyport area is secured for future generations

There are multiple options available to donors and we would be pleased to explore them with you any time.

If you are interested in naming the Newburyport Art Association as a beneficiary of your planned giving, please contact Sara Demrow Dent at sdmerowdent@newburyportart.org


The Sterns’ Legacy – a Visionary Gift

Maria and Philip Stern captured their love for the arts and imagined the possibility for future generations by naming the NAA as one of two primary beneficiaries of their bequest.  In 2011, this bequest became the seed for future growth with the creation of an endowment at the NAA.
