Make a Planned Gift.  Become a History Keeper.

For example, you can make the Tri-Cities Historical Museum the beneficiary of a bequest through your Will or estate plans, an IRA or 401(k) retirement account, or a life insurance policy.   Participating in this program requires just two steps. The first is arranging for a planned gift in favor of the Tri-Cities Historical Museum. The second is letting us know of your intentions by completing the History Keepers form.
