Members and friends can support the Society with their financial gifts. Many give above and beyond their dues, becoming Guardians of our Historical Heritage. Some give gifts in honor of others; or in memory of friends and family. You can honor someone with a gift at a birthday, anniversary, or holiday, such as Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, or Christmas.
We accept stocks and bonds in our Charles Schwab investment account. Gifts benefit our various programs/projects: cataloging in the Rutledge Archive, the living classroom in the schoolroom, the planned high-altitude ranching and agriculture exhibits in the Rice barn; or general operating expenses. It is possible to designate a program or project supported by your gift. We also accept bequests, charitable remainder trusts and other planned giving options of your choice.
Each December, people have the opportunity to give to the non-profit organizations of their choice through Colorado Gives Day. Watch for details each fall beginning in November.
