The Hazel Salmi Legacy Society:
Make a Lasting Gift to the Richmond Art Center

For generations, the Richmond Art Center has enriched and strengthened our community through opportunities for making, seeing and exploring art. We provide art programs in our studios and galleries, and out in our neighborhoods.

Ensure future generations the benefits of the Richmond Art Center by including us in your estate plan. Making a planned gift — by including a bequest to the Art Center in your will or by naming the Richmond Art Center as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy or retirement fund — can offer significant tax advantages, and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.

The Richmond Art Center has received bequests, many from former students, volunteers, artists and board members, from hundreds of dollars to parcels of land. Surviving partners have made bequests on behalf of loved ones who loved the Art Center. Artists whose earliest exhibitions were held at the Richmond Art Center have bequeathed their legacies to us.

This page provides general information about giving opportunities. It is not intended to offer legal or tax advice. Please consult an attorney or financial advisor for all matters related to estate planning — including the specific wording of bequests in your will.

If you would like more information about making a planned gift, please contact Catherine Millar, Development Director at or 510.620.6780.
