Remembering the Vermont Humanities Council in Your Estate Planning
Have you provided for the Vermont Humanities Council in your estate? If you have but have not yet notified us, we hope you will do so and become a member of the VHC Legacy Society. Simply contact Peter Gilbert via e-mail (click on name) or 802.262.2626, ext. 300. Also let us know if you would like more information about how you can include the Vermont Humanities Council in your planning, and how you can benefit from a planned gift to the VHC.
Making a Bequest or Other Planned Gift
Providing for the Vermont Humanities Council through any of a variety of planned giving vehicles is an act of affirmation — about Vermonters and about the future of Vermont communities.
If you’ve been an annual donor to VHC, a planned gift can be a way to ensure that your important support for VHC does not end when your annual donations end. Or a planned gift may be a way of supporting VHC in a way that you cannot during your lifetime.
In any case, a planned gift is a very personal and powerful way to express what you care about — your values and your hopes for our state and our society.
The Vermont Humanities Council Legacy Society
The Vermont Humanities Council Legacy Society was established to recognize and thank those who have provided for the Vermont Humanities Council through their estate plans. We would be pleased to list you as a member of the Legacy Society in our annual reports or newsletters in order to honor you, to thank you, and, we hope, to inspire others to join you in making such a planned gift. We also look forward to sending a gift of appreciation to those who notify VHC of their intentions to provide for VHC through any of a variety of planned giving vehicles.
Learn about different planned giving options for different donors’ circumstances.
