Make a Donation to The Granger Homestead

The Granger Homestead Society would be pleased and grateful to accept a donation in any amount to help us continue our work promoting knowledge and understanding of the history of Canandaigua, New York and the surrounding region through its stewardship of the Homestead's holdings as resources for public education, use and appreciation.  This purpose shall be fulfilled by preserving, maintaining and interpreting its site, structures and collections and making them available to the public for research, educational programs, and appropriate private and community functions.

Create a legacy through charitable giving

The benefits of making a philanthropic gift are far-reaching.  Different types of planned giving can provide for the current and future financial needs of you, your spouse and your family.  For example, a charitable remainder trust (also called a lifetime income gift) allows you and your heirs an annual income that is either a fixed dollar amount or a fixed percentage for life.  All giving options allow for a variety of tax advantages.

There are also heartfelt benefits.  Through charitable planned giving, you can help instill a sense of tradition and value in your children, friends, and colleagues.  The income generated by the principal of your gift can make an impact for generations to come.  An investment in people is one that continues forever.

Make us a part of your financial plan

Charitable planned giving is like any other investment that you make.  You do not need to give away tremendous amounts of money to make a difference.  Small well-placed gifts are effective ways to support one or more causes that you care about - causes that reflect your values.  Gifts do not have to be strictly cash.  Gifts may include any asset may be given such as stocks, bonds, real estate, jewelry, vehicles etc.  As a matter of fact, giving assets may offer you more tax advantages than only giving cash.

For more information on how you can provide for yourself and your family, and at the same time create a living legacy so that future generations can experience the important history of the Granger Homestead please contact:
