Kennedy Legacy Circle of the Bowers Museum continues to provide the world's finest arts and cultures to future generations.

Over the past 75 years, the Bowers Museum has experienced tremendous growth and hopes to continue to serve the Southern California community as the largest museum for many years to come. With a focus on sustainability in the more distant future, the Kennedy Legacy Circle of the Bowers Museum has been launched to encourage our supporters to think of the Bowers and our importance to the Orange County area. Your donation to the Museum, in any one of many possible forms, can help us plan for the future. This program is designed to provide a vehicle for friends of the museum to remember the Bowers in their planned giving, and at the same time provide tax benefits to the donor. We need your support in our efforts to continue to provide the world's finest arts and cultures for future generations. If you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit through a planned gift, please contact us.
