EndowmentFamily Visits Painting

We at the museum are reminded every day of the power of gift planning through some of our founders—the Wade Family. This family made a visionary gift to establish a home for the Tioga County Historical Society Museum, and through their planning their vision became a reality in 1960.

Making a gift to the Tioga County Historical Society through gift planning can be done regardless of your net worth, using a variety of fiscal planning tools. Often there are tax incentives and benefits that encourage charitable giving.

Like our founders of yesterday, our mission “to preserve and protect Tioga County history so we maintain our county’s future while enjoying artifacts from our past” can be continued today through your legacy in artistic excellence, scholarship, or community outreach.

The Tioga History Museum has many methods of recognizing your generosity. Our staff will work with you in arranging proper forms of recognition that reflect your gift’s purpose and your preferences. Gifts may also be given anonymously.We look forward to working with you to accomplish your philanthropic goals and invite you to explore our website and ask questions.
