Members who donate $1,000 or more annually become part of the Washington Trust's Preservation Circle, recognizing the leadership giving of our most committed members. Members at the Preservation Circle level are entitled to preferred membership benefits, including invitations to exclusive events and tours at unique historic properties, as well as additional recognition opportunities.

OTHER GIVING OPPORTUNITIES
The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation welcomes deferred or planned gifts to protect the places that matter for future generations. These gifts may take the form of a general bequest, real estate, life insurance, IRA/pension/retirement Funds, and life-income gifts (such as a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust).
Estate planning should be undertaken with the assistance of a legal or financial adviser who can help in determining the optimal planned gift for your personal situation, as well as the tax benefits for you and your family. If you have already included the Washington Trust in your estate, please let us know!
We would love to express our gratitude, keep you informed of our achievements and, with your permission, publicly recognize your foresight and generosity.
