Endowment and Legacy Gifts

A gift to the Endowment Fund or a Legacy gift made through your will or trust can be one of the most significant ways you can support efforts to preserve the rich heritage and history of Essex County and inspire others to appreciate the unique traditions that are a part of Essex County.

The Essex County Museum and Historical Society Endowment was established in 2007 to ensure the long-term financial stability and viability of the Museum. These investments are managed for the longer term.  The Endowment Fund is a viable means when considering one-time charitable gifts, personal annual budgeting or estate and trust planning.

Donations in the form of cash, checks, bequests, securities, real estate or personal property are all acceptable and greatly appreciated. Please call the museum at 804-443-4690 or email us at director@ecmhs.org to learn more about these opportunities.
