IRA's can Last Forever
Estate planning gives us each an opportunity to think about what we value most in life and how we can continue to support those values beyond our life. David and Kim Hakensen made a thoughtful commitment to the Minnesota Historical Society's endowment through their estate plan. In consultation with their professional advisors and a development officer of the Society, the Hakensens established The David and Kim Hakensen Fund to benefit the Society's collections. Kim and David will fund this endowment through a 401(k) retirement fund.
David and Kim share an avid interest in collecting antiques and other collectibles with historical value. This manifests itself in their collecting pattern glass, art pottery and dinnerware from Minnesota-based Red Wing Pottery, as well as ceramics made by Minnesota artisans. From an early acquaintance with Nina Archabal, David became interested in the work of the Society's History Center. He assists the Society as a member of the Marketing Committee and has offered programming ideas that have contributed to Society exhibitions. Naming the Society as beneficiary of their retirement plan allows them to defer their gift and still experience the satisfaction of knowing that what they value most will be supported well into the future.
