Please include the World History Association in your planned giving.
Dear WHA Member,
As a supporter and member of the World History Association, you realize the importance of the organization and its mission. You also realize the importance of a stable financial foundation and may have already considered placing the WHA in your planned giving so that you may continue to have a continuing impact on world history education and research.
We currently rely on your help to sustain the WHA through memberships and contributions in the short term, but we also need your help to ensure the long-term viability of the WHA. You have the significant ability to accomplish this through your estate planning as an expression of your vision and your commitment to world history. While your bequest will not affect your financial situation during your lifetime, your gift will provide an important legacy to ensure the continued success of the WHA.
Some common ways to include the WHA in your planned giving include gifts for a specific dollar amount, specific gifts (of an insurance policy beneficiary, savings bonds, or an annuity, for example), or a gift as a percentage of your total estate. Many sample bequest forms can be easily found online or at your local library, but your financial advisor or attorney is best equipped to assist you in the specific planning of any gifts and to ensure your wishes are correctly carried out. If you have already prepared your will or trust, you may simply amend it to make a gift to the WHA through a codicil or amendment.
When you do put us in your planned giving, kindly notify us of your intentions for our confidential records, and include our full legal name and address in your documents, which is: World History Association, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, headquartered at 2530 Dole Street, Sakamaki Hall A-203, Honolulu, HI 96822. Our Federal Tax ID number is 22-2464092.
With your permission, the WHA would also like to add your name to its publicly acknowledged benefactors. Please understand that any bequest, no matter its size, will be a thoughtful legacy that will have a positive impact for many years to come.
