The Legacy Society

What will your legacy be?

A simple, versatile way to continue protecting Connecticut’s historic places for decades to come is to mention the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation in your will or living trust. A charitable bequest is very easy, and your generosity will not only help the Trust continue their important work, but it may also inspire others to follow your example. Please consult your financial or legal adviser:  See Sample Bequest Language.

Bequests can take one of several forms, including:  

  • A specified dollar amount.
  • Specified assets, such as securities, real estate, or tangible personal property.
  • Retirement account assets, consisting of any benefits remaining in your retirement plan.
  • A residuary bequest, in which the Trust receives all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after all other obligations are met.
  • A contingent bequest, in which the Trust becomes the beneficiary only if the named beneficiary is unable to accept the bequest.  

If you let us know that you have mentioned CTHP in your estate plans and we will honor your commitment to preservation with membership in our Legacy Society. You may contact Jordan Sorensen at by calling 203-562-6312 with questions.
