Planned Giving

The Hofmann Society

The Hofmann Society was launched during the new building campaign to honor those generous legacy donors who have included the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive in their estate, retirement plan, or other life income gift such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust.  We are very grateful for their commitment to securing our future.

Jim Reynolds has traveled the world in search of the finest coffee beans for more than thirty years as a buyer for Peet’s Coffee, but he always looks forward to coming home to his beloved spots in Berkeley, including BAMPFA. 

“The arts are critical to making a city vibrant and unique. The University of California, Berkeley is fortunate to have wonderful resources, such as the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.”

Jim and his wife, Ruth, are honoring their lifetime commitment to the cultural life of our community through legacy giving. There are numerous easy options for making a legacy gift; some plans even provide lifetime income. Memorial and tribute gifts are promptly reported to family members designated by the donor
