A Will for Sharing
Donor Robert D. Harper with his beloved hibiscus
Robert D. (Bob) Harper had a dream for the San Antonio Museum of Art. A member since 1998 and frequent volunteer, Mr. Harper regularly attached handwritten notes to his membership renewals urging the Museum to open an inviting restaurant where visitors could gather, refuel and unwind.
Even once a restaurant was added in 2009, Mr. Harper felt so strongly about its future that upon his death last November at 86 the Museum received a $1.5 million gift that comprised the majority of his state. His will specified the gift be used to maintain a restaurant and to provide funding for traveling exhibitions “which might not otherwise be brought to San Antonio.” SAMA is already in the midst of refreshing its restaurant with a new concept and a new chef, but Mr. Harper’s gift now makes the vision of a renovated Hops House and expanded restaurant possible (stay tuned for more details)—as well as some exciting exhibitions!
This information is of a general nature and the donor should seek advice from the donor’s own legal and tax counselor.
