Unrestricted Gifts & Planned Giving
Unrestricted Gifts are most valuable because they enable the Goleta Valley Historical Society to apply the funds where they are most needed. Gifts of cash (check or credit card), appreciated securities, retirement assets and pledges over time are welcome. Non-cash gifts of property, art, vehicles, and other personal property are also appreciated.
Donor Designated Gifts can benefit the Goleta Valley Historical Society’s current projects such as the design and construction of exhibits, programs such as Pioneer Days, or a specific department: collections, education, events, or the Arboretum Restoration Project.
Naming opportunities are available.
Memorial & Honorary Gifts
Memorial & Honorary Gifts provide a lasting tribute to a friend or loved one. The Society will send an acknowledgement to the families of those memorialized or to the person honored without specifying the amount.
Shopping? Yes, shopping. When you shop on Amazon Smile, the Society receives a portion of the charity of your choice.
Goleta Valley Historical Society is committed to ethical use of public financial support.
