R. H. Norton Society

The R. H. Norton Society was established to recognize donors who have named the Norton Museum of Art as a beneficiary in their estate plans. There are no minimum gift amounts, dues, or fees associated with Membership in the R. H. Norton Society. You may also become a member should you promise a gift of art that the Museum has agreed to accept. The Norton formally recognizes members of the R. H. Norton Society with a high level of distinction. Members are invited to attend an annual special event in honor of the Society. We also publicly list the names of all members on our Donor Recognition Wall, though should you prefer to remain anonymous, we are happy to abide by your wishes.

If you have included the Museum in your estate plans, please let us know, so we can work with you and your advisors to make certain your intentions are carried out.

We thank the members of the R. H. Norton Society for choosing to include the Norton in their estate plans, and making the Museum a part of their legacy:
