Other Ways To Give

Planned Giving

Want to help insure the history of Pennsylvania is passed on to future generations?  Why not consider a bequest in your will? Here’s a sample paragraph to share with your attorney  which could be included in a new will or a codicil to an existing one: 

“I give, devise and bequeath unto the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation, 400 North Street, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (add description of bequest such as a stated amount, percentage of an estate, etc.) to be used for program or endowment as the Board of Directors deems most appropriate in order to advance the knowledge and appreciation of the history of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”

PHF provides only general information. A trained, experienced volunteer consultant is available at no cost or obligation to respond to your questions. In all cases the advice and counsel of one’s legal adviser should be sought.
