If you are like most of the people past
the age of 40, you’ve had some thought about estate planning. Some benefits
from your estate planning are the following: it preserves the value of your estate, it minimizes estate taxes, and
it can truly benefit your favorite charity.
The Wyandot County Archaeological &
Historical Society (WCA&HS) is a 501-C3 tax-exempt organization, so all gifts
are tax deductible. The WCA&HS has an endowment fund from which we use the interest for the operation of the Society.
In addition, your donation can be designated for the operation and
maintenance of a specific facility
(i.e. Museum, School House, or
Overland Inn/Anderson Building).
By your giving, you can feel assured that the WCA&HS will be preserved for future generations.
We hope that the WCA&HS is one of
your favorite charities and remembered during your estate planning.
Thank You in Advance
The Members of the
Board of Directors
