I have already decided on this some time ago, but my solution fits me and the nature of my collection. Therefore, it can not be considered as advice for you.
I will leave my collection to an organization that deals with local heritage.
My collection has a very local character and practically 0 monetary value.
I know the risks - that it would end up in some dusty drawer or given to friends of the curator as present. Mismanagement is a very realistic possibility in my country, especially if I will give it to a Palestinian heritage institute, where it really belongs. But I will take my chances.
If it would have had significant value, I would have appointed a collector friend whom I trust to sell the collection for a percentage and give it to my family. They deserve that because they indirectly paid for it too.
