The Polygon Gallery’s Endowment Fund provides steady income and enables the organization to advance its mission over the long-term. It is a permanent fund that is invested, and The Polygon Gallery receives an annual distribution from the investment income, while the original capital remains intact. This means that the Fund supports The Polygon’s activities in perpetuity.
You can make a permanent investment in The Polygon’s future by leaving a legacy gift to the Endowment Fund, which will provide generations to come with access to transformative art experiences.
We would be very pleased to hear from you if you have decided to leave a legacy gift to The Polygon Gallery, or if you would like to discuss your options.
