View from the north-east, North Dakota Heritage Center,State Museum Expansion, Bismarck, North Dakota.

The North Dakota Heritage Center sits in the center of our state. Travelers from the east or the west can experience sights and sounds from around the state before heading out to the Badlands, or the Pembina Gorge, or the Red River Valley. This "hub of history" showcases the best North Dakota has to offer.

Our ongoing mission is to preserve, expand and improve the Heritage Center and historical sites around the state.

Ways to Give

Many individuals have the capacity to make major gifts through transfers of stock or personal property or life insurance.  We would like to have the opportunity to explore these options with you, if they are appropriate.  Please contact our office so we can answer your questions.

Stocks:  Many donors use this convenient way to donate highly appreciated stocks to provide substantial capital gains tax savings.  Contact our office or your broker to talk about giving a gift in this way.  

Life Insurance:  You can name the Foundation as the beneficiary or transfer ownership of the policy to the Foundation.

Charitable Gift Annuity:  Make a gift to the Foundation and the Foundation will pay you a guaranteed fixed amount each year until your death.  This can benefit both husband and wife in a spousal gift annuity.  Tax benefits can be substantial.  Visit with us and your tax advisor.

Charitable Remainder Trusts:  Transfer assets to the Foundation and establish a trust and the beneficiary receives a lifetime income.

Retained Life Estate:  Deed property to the Foundation and you and/or your spouse retain the right to live there for the rest of your lives.  You receive an immediate tax benefit.

Wills: Remember to include the Foundation in your will. 

Matching Gifts: Will your employer or your spouse's employer match your gift? This is a way to double or maybe even triple your gift.

If you have questions, please contact Marlo Sveen, Executive Director, at marlo@statehistoricalfoundation.org, or call 701-222-1966.
