Your Legacy

Become a member of the Legacy Society today with your annual gift of $250, $500,or $1000+ support.

 

All dollars going into the Legacy Fund will stay there forever; we will only be using the interest on those monies. Please help the society to continue to provide great education, exhibits and programming for generations to come.

The Mission of the Legacy Fund is to develop and manage the funds to enhance and extend educational programs and exhibitions, both present and future.
 
The Legacy Fund enables members and friends of the Society to build a heritage of support for the generations to come. Supporting this fund with gifts apart from regular giving is one of the best ways to ensure that our mission and vision thrive for years to come.


Legacy Fund Facts:

To continue to maintain and develop education, exhibits, and programming the Steele County Historical Society’s Board has taken the initiative to develop a Legacy Fund to help us maintain long-term financial sustainability.

 

Become a charter member of the Legacy Fund, and your annual gift will be held in a special account with no principal being used. Only the interest generated will be used annually to ensure that the fund will be a true “legacy” for future generations.

 

Our goal is to raise 2 million dollars for the fund. Your continued generosity has gotten us this far on an incredible journey, and our success is truly YOUR success – we couldn’t have done it without you!

 

In your year-end planning please consider a tax deductible donation to the annual Legacy Fund so that SCHS may continue to “preserve and share” even more great Steele County history for you and the generations to come! Click here for Legacy Fund brochure.
