Retained Life Estate

A Retained Life Estate allows a donor to make a gift of his or her primary residence or vacation home to the Children’s Museum, yet continue to live there for life. A donor giving a Retained Life Estate to the Children’s Museum enjoys an immediate income tax deduction. In addition, because the property has been given to the Children’s Museum, it is not included in the donor’s probate estate.



The Children’s Museum of Sonoma County was founded in 2005 and is designated as a tax-exempt nonprofit charitable 501(c)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service with the Tax ID #20-3496878.
