Flushing Historical Society Endowment Trust
In 2000, the Flushing Area Historical Society established an Irrevocable Endowment Trust to continue improving the museum and educational programs. The Trust accepts memorial gifts, special bequests and stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. The Trust can also be named as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy. There may be several tax advantages to these gifts (please consult a tax professional). The Board is very excited about the potential improvements to an already great asset to the Flushing community. We encourage you to remember the Historical Society in your estate plan, memorial gifts and yearly charitable giving. Please feel free to contact one of the officers or directors with any questions. FANS is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
