Pacific Asia Museum is launching a new initiative to help show people time-proven ways to give and support the museum, ways that often don't impact your cash flow.

This initiative helps people free up dollars that would otherwise be paid in tax, money that can actually be redirected as a donation to Pacific Asia Museum. 

Helping individuals discover dollars that have never been available before is a key strategy in good stewardship.

Consider these questions:

  1. Have you considered creative ways to give that involve your estate plan?
  2. Did you know you could consolidate all your regular donations for the next 5 years and take the entire tax deduction this year?
  3. If you own real estate, you probably know you will have to pay nearly 25% tax when selling the property. Would you like to hear about how you can avoid that 25% tax by committing to a 10% gift at the end of your lifetime?
  4. Are you aware that key financial tools (ie. 401(k), IRA, Life Insurance, etc) are critical to your safeguarding your future? And they can be excellent tools to use in your charitable giving too?
  5. Would you like to learn how to pass on your philanthropic passion to your children and grandchildren?

If any of these topics are of interest to you or you have further questions, please contact Charles Mason, Executive Director using the contact button below, or call 626.449.2742 x18. Charles would be happy to connect you with a team member that can discuss your needs.

About Pacific Asia Museum

The mission of Pacific Asia Museum is to advance intercultural understanding through the arts of Asia and the Pacific Islands. The museum opened in 1971 and is one of only a few institutions in the United States dedicated exclusively to the arts and culture of Asia and the Pacific Islands. Located in Pasadena, California, the museum serves the greater Los Angeles community and beyond as an educational resource for children, teens and adults.

Pacific Asia Museum’s historic landmark building was built between 1924 and 1929 and emulates a Northern Chinese courtyard mansion. The museum has ten permanent galleries and three temporary exhibition galleries and holds a collection of more than 15,000 works of art. The museum typically organizes five to eight temporary exhibitions per year.

The museum provides over 300 educational programs to a diverse audience every year. Programs include tours, workshops, lectures, classes, film screenings and special events. Free access to the museum is available on the fourth Friday of each month. Additionally, the museum offers free family festivals and community partner days throughout the year. On an average annual basis, the museum serves 35,000 visitors and 50,000 website visitors.
