The Past for the Future: A Simple Way
to Give a Legacy Gift to the Society
“I give, devise, and bequeath the sum of $____________
(or _______% percent) of my net estate, as
finally determined for estate tax purposes,
to the Grosse Pointe Historical Society (GPHS),
a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization located in
Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, to be used in
furtherance of its charitable purposes.”
We are indebted to our donors who have included the
Grosse Pointe Historical Society in their wills or
trusts. Insurance policies, IRAs, or annuities are an
easy way to leave money to the Society. If you would
like to leave a restricted gift or would like to discuss
other gift planning ideas, please call (313) 884-7010.
