Bequests and Memorial Gifts


Bequests are gifts left by will. This is the best-known deferred gift and, therefore, the most often used. Most bequests can be written for a specific amount, a percentage of the total estate, or the remainders after specified conditions are met. A bequest may include cash, securities, and other assets of the donor’s choice.

We encourage donors to inform us, and provide us with documentation, regarding their intentions to include the Steamship Historical Society of America in their estate plans.

Memorial Gifts

Donors are encouraged to make memorial gifts to honor the memory of a deceased person. All memorial gifts are treated as gifts made to endowment.
