Join the Legacy Society

Leave a legacy in American history, one that will ensure women's many achievements and contributions are recognized. The Legacy Society was created to acknowledge those who have made a commitment to the future of the National Women’s History Museum by including the Museum in their estate plans. With permission, Legacy Society members are acknowledged in Museum publications, on our website, and receive invitations to Museum sponsored events.

By joining the Legacy Society, your far-reaching gifts will enable the Museum to inform and inspire women, men, girls and boys around our nation for generations to come.

The Museum accepts gifts of cash, appreciated securities, and other assets including stock, life insurance, retirement assets, and real estate. If you have questions about joining the Legacy Society, please contact Lora Lynn Jones via email or 703-461-1920.


Making a bequest through a will or a living trust makes a statement about what matters most in your life, and ensures that your intentions will be followed by those administering your estate. You may designate a specific dollar amount, percentage of the remaining estate, or make a beneficiary designation of certain assets to the Museum. Besides listing the Museum in your will, you may also sign a memorandum of agreement that specifies how your gift is to be used. See the official bequest language for the National Women's History Museum here.


As a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, all gifts to the Museum are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
