Planned Giving

Support Brooklyn Historical Society through planned giving

Planned giving is a remarkable form of philanthropy that involves contributing one’s assets through wills and estate plans. These are also called “legacy gifts” because so many are created to make an impact for future generations — and often allow donors to make personally significant gifts, in many cases larger than they thought possible.

It is surprisingly easy to arrange a planned gift. The easiest way to include BHS in your estate gift is through a will, also called a bequest. There are also many other creative and flexible planned giving options that can benefit you and BHS.
