For Advisors

If you are advising a client who is considering a planned gift or bequest to the J. Paul Getty Trust, we welcome the opportunity to work with you in helping your client. Please use the resources and tools below, and feel free to contact us at any time for further information or assistance on a confidential basis.

Here is some basic information about our organization:

Legal Name

All charitable gifts should be directed to “The J. Paul Getty Trust, 1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049, a California charitable trust, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number 95-1790021.”

Tax I.D. Number

The J. Paul Getty Trust's Tax ID number is 95-1790021.

Consistent with safeguarding its own interests, the J. Paul Getty Trust tries to make arranging a gift for the organization’s benefit as easy as possible, and we strive to honor the intentions of all our donors. Accordingly, we hope the following will prove helpful:

If one of your clients arranges an estate gift for the benefit of the Getty, we would very much appreciate knowing about the gift, so we can express our sincere gratitude and—as noted above—make sure we will be able to fulfill the donor’s wishes.

Of course, we respect the fact that in some cases donors prefer to remain anonymous. If you are willing to serve as an intermediary, your client can share information about his or her plans without divulging his or her identity.

Finally, we want to be of assistance to you in any way we can, whether you are simply looking for general information about charitable giving, considering particular options on behalf of a particular client, or needing our cooperation in the administration of a bequest or other type of planned gift. 

  • Contact us to discuss a potential—or hypothetical—gift situation, to request a gift illustration, or for a confidential form that can be used in notifying the J. Paul Getty Trust that an estate gift has been arranged for the Getty's benefit.  

Thank you for the work you do on behalf of our donors!
