Planned Giving & Endowment

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a philanthropic gift that is funded either during your lifetime or after your death. The gift is part of a larger estate-planning process in which you decide how certain assets are distributed.

Legacy gifts are invaluable to the AHCNA in order to grow, remain viable, and address the changing needs of the community it serves. Gifts from our most committed supporters will continue this work well into the twenty-first century and beyond.

There are many financial instruments available and an estate planner can help you achieve your long-term financial goals. By including the AHCNA in your long-term plans, you can achieve the goals that are important to you – to benefit yourself, your family, and an institution that you value and believe in.

AHCNA’s Endowment Fund

The Arts and Heritage Center’s Mission is to provide an educational venue to showcase and promote the arts and regional history.  It also serves three local community groups, the Heritage Council, the Cultural Arts Council and the Artists Guild.  As a registered non-profit corporation the Center generates the majority of its annual financial support.

To provide long term financial support and financial stability, the Center’s Board of Directors adopted a Resolution in March 2016 creating the AHCNA Endowment Fund.  The Endowment is currently valued at $40,000 and is managed by the Community Foundation of the CSRA.  The Endowment provides supplemental operating income to the Center as needed.

We appreciate and thank the individuals who have made contributions to the Endowment, and hope to receive donations from the community and the arts groups that the Center supports.  Donations to the Endowment may be made by cash or check, by gifts of stocks or bonds, and by planned giving through bequests in a will, trusts and estate planning.  Checks should be made out to the Arts and Heritage Center and marked “Endowment.”  If you would like additional information on the Endowment please contact Dr. John Bigger at (803) 278-1805 or at, or Mary Anne Bigger, the Executive Director, at (803) 441-4380.
