The long-term sustainability of the Lewes Historical Society depends on endowment gifts from generous supporters who value the preservation of the rich history of our region. These legacy gifts ensure that we have the means to restore, maintain, and enhance the treasures the Society has amassed over the years. In addition to supporting the ongoing operation of the Society, they also help in the development of expanded outreach to the community through educational programs, exhibits, and scholarship.

We welcome the opportunity to help you explore ways to support the Society’s endowment. Together, we can answer your specific questions, review the tax and income benefits of living and testamentary gifting, and review estate planning techniques to benefit both your heirs and the Society.

As stewards of our region’s incredibly rich past and advocates of sharing it with generations to come, we sincerely hope that you will consider supporting the endowment of the Lewes Historical Society.
