Annual membership fees are the core of our financial stability. Sustaining membership allows us to better budget our cash flow. You can become a member by clicking on the Donate button below or completing the membership form and sending it to us along with your dues.
Make a one-time donation. These donations can be used to honor or remember someone special in your life through a memorial donation. They can also be used to support various fund-raising campaigns of the society such as the Preservation Campaign.
A stock gift or cash gift can be made to the San Benito County Historical Fund at the Community Foundation for San Benito County at givesanbenito.org
Volunteers power our organization whether it's at the Wapple House Museum, Research Room, Historical Village or behind the scenes doing administrative work. If you have an hour a week or an hour a month or time for a single project, we appreciate your volunteer effort. For more information on volunteer opportunities, contact email@example.com
Consider making the San Benito County Historical Society a part of your legacy. You can do this by naming the society as a beneficiary of a part of your estate, trust or retirement plan. There are sophisticated tax saving tools that can leverage the value of such gifts.
Donors over the age of 72 can contribute all or a portion of their required annual IRA distributions to avoid paying income tax on the income. This is done by following the rules for a Qualified Charitable Distribution. If you would like more information on this, we'd love to have a conversation with you.
