Planned Giving

Make a Lasting Gift

Increase the impact of your gift through planned giving. By including a bequest provision to the BMI in your will, you can help the BMI preserve Maryland’s rich industrial heritage and inspire the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs for years to come.

Whether a gift through your will or retirement plan, a planned gift is one of the most meaningful ways for you to ensure that your personal, financial, and philanthropic goals are fulfilled, while having a substantial impact on the BMI.

While the BMI does not provide personal, legal, financial, tax, or other professional advice, we are happy to answer questions and talk about our planned giving program. Donors and prospective donors considering a planned gift are urged to seek counsel from their own professional advisors.

For more information, please contact Deborah Cardin at or 410.727.4808 ext. 129.
