Other Ways to Support Living History Farms

Matching Gifts

The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company allows, we will include the amount of their match when acknowledging your gift in donor lists. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Send us your paperwork and we will do the rest! (Forms are typically available from your human resources department and/or on your company’s website.)

Please enclose your matching gift form with your pledge or mail it to: Stacie Stearns, Living History Farms, 2600 111th Street, Urbandale IA 50322. If you have any questions concerning your matching gift, please contact Stacie Stearns at giving@lhf.org or 515-278-5286 ext. 113.

 

Tribute Gifts

Giving a gift in memory or honor of someone important in your life serves a two-fold purpose. Not only do you commemorate and honor that person, but you also help us to educate, entertain and connect people of all ages to Midwestern rural life experiences. When making a tribute gift, please provide the contact information for the honored person(s) or appropriate family member so we can send a personal note to them in addition to the acknowledgement sent to you. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution in memory of, in tribute or in honor of someone, or to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or wedding, please contact Stacie Stearns at giving@lhf.org or 515-278-5286 ext. 113.

 

Stocks/Securities

No matter what tax bracket you are in, making a gift of appreciated stock makes sense. For more information on how to make a gift from the sale of stock, please contact Stacie Stearns at giving@lhf.org or 515-278-5286 ext. 113.

 

Legacy Gifts

Since the creation of our endowment in 2008, bequests and legacies of all sizes have provided vial sustaining support to assure that Living History Farms is here for generations to come. Anyone who has made a gift to our Endowment, or let us know that Living History Farms is included in their estate plans is party of our legacy society.
