Topic – Building vs Collecting and estate planning

Recently in Ontario, a modeler’s estate had to deal with 11,000 kits. Very overwhelming for the family I’m sure.
I’ve seen ad’s on model railroading sites about estate planning. Is this something kit builders should be thinking about.
This is not just a scale model kit issue, it affects many hobbies.

https://www.smh.com.au/money/estate-planning-for-hobbyists-and-collectors-20171109-gzhxe5.html

https://www.forbes.com/sites/bobcarlson/2018/10/30/planning-for-your-collections-and-treasures/#556d45ff5ec9

Charitable donation. This is the obvious choice of many, but people who look into it often are surprised at the difficulty of giving away a collection. That’s one reason you need to begin planning years ahead of time. Collectors often assume that they’ll find a museum, university, or similar non-profit organization that will be happy to accept a donation of the collection and displays it to the public. A collector might imagine that there will be a wing or at least a room devoted to the hobby, perhaps including a brief biography.

Museums and charities often have a different view. Many museums have more items than they can display. I’ve seen estimates that 20% or less of the items held by museums ever are put on display. Instead, they are stored.

It costs a non-profit money to accept items into inventory, store them, provide security and maintain them in good condition. Also, an institution might want only part of a collection or a few select items that complement what they already own. Many of them will want the collection to be accompanied by a cash donation that can be used to maintain the collection.
