We rely on your generosity to sustain our history and preservation work. Gifts of all amounts are welcome, appreciated, and needed.

A planned gift of funds, property, or collections offers many advantages, including the fulfillment of philanthropic goals and a reduction or elimination of estate tax liability.

We just announced one new initiative, the 1661 Society, which recognizes those generous individuals who are leaving a future legacy to the Schenectady County Historical Society. We acknowledge a bequest intention or other planned gifts of any size with membership in the 1661 Society. For more information, please call 518-374-0263×4.
