Ways to Give
Thank you for considering a gift to the York County Heritage Trust. When considering a contribution to the Trust, you have tremendous flexibility in determining how the funds will be used, as well as many options for making your gift.

Unrestricted gifts are among the most valuable to the Trust, because they allow the organization to allocate funds where the greatest need arises or to take advantage of unique opportunities. Your unrestricted contribution may be used to support costs associated with innovative programming, materials for exhibitions, research, facilities and more.

Directed gifts allow you to designate your gift to a department or priority project within the Trust. When you make a directed gift to the Trust, you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a program that is personally meaningful.

Endowment gifts provide the option of designating your gift for general or restricted endowment providing the YCHT with long term financial support by expanding the permanent financial base.

Project Endowment Funds may be started for specific purposes with a minimum contribution of $10,000.

Types of Gifts

Outright Gifts
When you make an outright gift to the YCHT, your contribution will be put to work immediately. Outrights gifts include:
  • Cash gifts - The easiest gifts can be made through credit/debit card transactions, outright cash, or personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders made payable to the YCHT.
  • Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and bonds - These gifts provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to the YCHT before they are sold. To transfer stock contributions please contact the Development Office at (717) 848-1587.
  • Gifts of personal property - Contributions of rare books, works of art, valuable collectibles, and tangible items of demonstrable value are important for the YCHT's mission to collect and share York County history. In some cases these gifts may enable you to make a significant gift to support the YCHT with outstanding tax benefits to you.
