Bequests

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.” Want to discuss endowing a program or exhibit?  Please contact Heather Hu, (717) 787-9123.  The PHF provides only general information.  In all cases the advice and counsel of one’s legal advisor should be sought.
