Hildene formal gardens

Hildene Legacy Society

Honoring those who ensure our future by including Hildene in their estate plans.

In 2012, the Hildene Legacy Society was created to acknowledge and celebrate those who, through their generosity and planning, have made a commitment in their estate plans to safeguard the entirety of the Lincoln family home for future generations. By following in their footsteps, you too, can support Hildene’s vibrant future.

Create A Lasting Legacy

We invite you to become a member of the Hildene Legacy Society.

Including a gift to Hildene in your will is one of the best and simplest ways available to ensure that Hildene has the resources not just to endure, but to reach its full potential in the years to come.

As a member of the Legacy Society, you will be given the opportunity to be recognized permanently on our legacy wall in the Oscar V. Johnson Welcome Center. In addition, members are honored at a pinning ceremony where they receive a pewter pin depicting Hildene's formal entrance gates.

Please contact Nan Bambara, Advancement Director at 802-367-7994 or email Nan for more information about making a planned gift to Hildene. All inquiries are confidential and without obligation.
