Mary Chase Perry Stratton was passionate about ceramics. Committed to innovation. And determined to explore the boundaries the medium. Her contributions – and her beliefs about what is important in life – created a legacy that is as vital today as it was more than one hundred years ago.

What would you like your legacy to be?

Consider the things you’re passionate about. You may wish to serve underserved communities or provide arts education in schools that have been forced to drop it from their curricula. As an appreciator of ceramics, you may want to support new generations of artists. You may care deeply about the historic preservation of a Detroit iconic landmark. Whatever your passion, a gift to Pewabic contributes to a living legacy.

There are a number of ways to support Pewabic through estate planning such as bequests, trusts, charitable gift annuities, stocks, property and endowments. These gifts allow you to make a significant contribution to Pewabic’s legacy and mission. With the assistance of your financial planning adviser, a gift to Pewabic may go towards scholarships, endowment, general operations, capital improvements or other earmarked initiative.

Every gift to Pewabic makes a difference!
