Virginia Heritage Registry

Bound in red leather and kept in the society’s archives, the Virginia Heritage Registry enshrines the names of those individuals who have informed VHS of the society’s place in their financial or estate plans.

If you have already included a legacy for VHS in your plans, please take this opportunity to tell us whatever you would like us to know about your plans.  Even knowing simply of your intention to make an unspecified planned gift enables us to thank you, and gives us added confidence in our future.

To enter the Virginia Heritage Registry (anonymously, if your prefer) please make use of this form, or contact Pam Seay at pseay@vahistorical.org.
