Support the Manchester Historic Association beyond your lifetime and ensure that your interest and passion for Manchester’s history is continued for years to come.

Naming Manchester Historic Association a beneficiary of your will or trust

A common and simple way of supporting the Manchester Historic Association is by making a provision in your will or trust.

Your will or trust designates your beneficiaries and spells out your final wishes. The beneficiaries would include your heirs, of course, but many people include provisions for charitable organizations as well. It is our hope that you will consider including Manchester Historic Association in your plans.

The following suggested forms of bequests are examples that can be adapted by you and your attorney to meet your specific intentions.

Specific Bequest
A specific bequest names a particular dollar amount to be left to Manchester Historic Association.

“I give and bequeath to Manchester Historic Association, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 02-0223390, with offices at 129 Amherst Street, Manchester, NH 03101, the sum of $ ___________ to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as A or B).”

Residuary Bequest
A residuary bequest first leaves specific amounts to family members, friends, or other charities, and then designates that all or part of what remains should go to Manchester Historic Association.

“I give and bequeath to Manchester Historic Association, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 02-0223390, with offices at 129 Amherst Street, Manchester, NH 03101, all (or stated percentage of) the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as A or B).”

Contingent Bequest
A contingent bequest names Manchester Historic Association to receive part or all of your estate in the event your designated beneficiaries predecease you.

“If any beneficiary named in this will is not living at my decease, then I give and bequeath to Manchester Historic Association, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 02-0223390, with offices at 129 Amherst Street, Manchester, NH 03101, any bequest which said beneficiary would have received if he or she had survived me.”


Other Gifts:
You can also name Manchester Historic Association as a beneficiary of an IRA, 401k, 403b, or other qualified gift plan. This simple approach to planned giving may generate significant tax savings for your estate and heirs while supporting the MHA and our mission to preserve and share Manchester’s history. You can also name the MHA as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, with potential estate tax savings for heirs and support for the MHA.
