Legacy Society

When you make a bequest to Connecticut Landmarks, we recognize and honor your generosity by inducting you into the Legacy Society, established by the organization in 2011.

If you have already made estate plans that include Connecticut Landmarks, please let us know about them so that we may properly recognize your membership in the Legacy Society and let you know about all the privileges of membership.

Farsighted individuals have made - and continue to make - a significant impact on Connecticut Landmarks and our ability to inspire interest and encourage learning about the American past by preserving our historic properties, collections and stories. We are deeply grateful to each one of them.
