PRESERVATION THROUGH PLANNED GIVING

Historical preservation programs
in Texas benefit greatly from the generousity
of individuals, estates, and
businesses. Most of the contributions
to the Texas Historical Foundation
are made in the form of cash or other
outright gifts. Some of the most generous
contributions have been what
are known as planned gifts; bequests,
charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance,
gifts of personal property, residences,
farms, or ranches, and other
gifts of material value. Through
planned giving, an individual can
provide the Foundation with the resources
it needs for the preservation
of historical buildings, archeological
sites, and artifacts as well as the enhancement
of Texas heritage through
publications.
The Texas Historical Foundation's
development effort was established to
attract the needed private financial
support to preserve historical struc

tures, sites, and other expressions of
Texas heritage: Preservation of our
State's heritage is the responsibility of
all Texans. To accomplish the goals
of preservation statewide, money is
needed and it is up to the private sector
to provide this financial support.
Our heritage defines our contemporary
culture which in turn is shaping
our future. If we are to have the
structural and material culture of our
past for future generations to appreciate,
it is time to contribute to that
legacy. Please give today.
