Remembering the Historical Society in your will or trust

A bequest to the Historical Society of Cheshire County from your will or trust does not cost you anything today and will support the society long after you are gone.

Here is an example of typical bequest language you could add to a will:

I bequeath $______ or __% of my estate to the Historical Society of Cheshire County, a nonprofit organization located at 246 Main Street in Keene, New Hampshire (mailing address P.O. Box 803, Keene, NH  03431).

The David R. Proper Legacy Society is a group of supporters who have ensured the long-term health of the Society by naming the Historical Society of Cheshire County as a future beneficiary of their will or trust. David R. Proper was a school-teacher, author, librarian, historian, and a member of the Historical Society of Cheshire County for 65 years.
