Roy R. Neuberger, Founding Patron, Neuberger Museum of Art Roy R. Neuberger, Founding Patron, Neuberger Museum of ArtIt was nearly unheard of fifty years ago: a prominent collector agreed to donate major works of art from his personal collection to a public university museum. From his initial promise of 300 works, founding patron Roy R. Neuberger ultimately donated nearly 1,000 paintings, drawings, collages, and sculptures to the Neuberger Museum of Art.

Over the years, many more individuals have helped the Museum grow through their own bequests of art, other assets, and financial gifts. As we look to the future, the Neuberger will look to a new generation of patrons who are stepping forward to make their own commitments to public access to the arts. You too can contribute to the Neuberger by making a planned gift to the Museum.

Planned giving, which includes bequests and gifts of art or other assets, provides for the future health of the Neuberger while enhancing the financial future of your family. With your planned gift, you may receive financial or tax benefits and achieve much more with your donation than you may have thought was possible.

To learn more about making a planned gift, contact Christine Downes, Director of Development, at 914.251.6109 or nma.development@purchase.edu.
