Include the Museum in Your Will

Leave your legacy at the Geneva History Museum with a bequest from your estate to help sustain and strengthen the Museum for years to come.

A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to Geneva History Museum by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to GHM, or by designating GHM as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for GHM in the future
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change
  • Gifts to GHM from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes
  • If you let GHM know of your plans, we will be able to thank you now and recognize you as a Legacy Donors on our lobby donor wall.
