One of the most common ways that donors support TSHA is through a charitable bequest. A bequest remains entirely under your control throughout your lifetime and becomes irrevocable only at death. There are several ways to establish a bequest, and it is not necessary to rewrite your current will or trust. Work with your attorney or financial planner to add an amendment, called a codicil, using language such as:
I give and bequeath to the Texas State Historical Society (Tax ID 74 6025220), located in Austin, Texas, the sum of _____ ($_____), or _____ percent (_____%) of my estate, or (description of property) to be used for the benefit of its general purposes (or describe the TSHA program you wish to support).
We would be pleased to work with you as your create or revise your estate plans. Regardless of the size of your estate, your gift will help preserve the rich and diverse history of Texas for future generations.
