Welcome to Planned Giving

When you make a planned gift to Cranbrook, you help us continue fulfilling our mission to develop a diverse and inclusive community of people who will live with purpose and integrity, create with passion, explore with curiosity, and strive for excellence.

To get started creating your legacy at Cranbrook, learn about the different gift options available to you by exploring What to Give and How to Give. Then compare gift options and calculate how these gifts could work for you. And, of course, if you have any questions, please contact us. We enjoy working with you to accomplish your philanthropic and financial goals.
