DAVID R. PROPER LEGACY SOCIETY
David R. Proper was a schoolteacher, librarian, historian, author, and a member of the Historical Society of Cheshire County for 65 years.

The Historical Society of Cheshire County invites you to join the David R. Proper Legacy Society if you intend to include the Historical Society in your will or as a beneficiary of one of your investments. Estate planning can help bring you peace of mind, knowing that your loved ones and the organizations you treasure will be cared for. Today the Historical Society of Cheshire County stands on a solid foundation that has been built in part by legacy gifts.

 

A legacy gift can take many forms:
You can include the Historical Society of Cheshire County in your will or estate plan with a bequest gift.

You can designate the Historical Society of Cheshire County as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or a retirement plan.

You can give a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from an IRA.

You can give a gift of appreciated stock.

You can set up a life income gift such as a charitable gift annuity that provides annual income payments to you and ultimately benefits the Historical Society of Cheshire County.

In many cases, a planned gift can help you avoid income taxes or estate taxes, accomplish your philanthropic goals, and provide the greatest benefit for you and the Historical Society of Cheshire County. The Society is happy to work with you and your financial advisor to establish a legacy gift. Please reach out to Rick Swanson, rswanson@hsccnh.org, 603-352-1895 with questions, comments, or feedback.
