Naming the Nicollet County Historical Society a Beneficiary of Your Will or Trust

A common and simple way of supporting the Nicollet County Historical Society is by making a provision in your will or trust.

Your will designates your beneficiaries and spells out your final wishes. The beneficiaries would include your heirs, of course, but many people have provisions for charitable organizations as well. We hope that you will consider including NCHS in your plans.

The following suggested forms of bequests are examples that can be adapted by you and your attorney to meet your specific intentions.

If you have any questions, please contact the Executive Director at director@nchsmn.org or (507) 934-2160.

Specific Bequest

A specific bequest names a particular dollar amount or percentage of the estate to be left to the Nicollet County Historical Society.

“I give and bequeath to the Nicollet County Historical Society, a Minnesota non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 141-0871254, with offices at 1851 N Minnesota Avenue, Saint Peter, MN 56082, the sum of $ ___________ (or X% of my estate) to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as A or B).”

Residuary Bequest 

A residuary bequest first leaves specific amounts to family members, friends, or other charities and then designates that all or part of what remains should go to the Nicollet County Historical Society.

“I give and bequeath to the Nicollet County Historical Society, a Minnesota non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 41-0871254, with offices at 1851 N Minnesota Avenue, Saint Peter, MN 56082, all (or stated percentage of) the rest residue and remainder of my estate to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as A or B).”

Contingent Bequest

A contingent bequest names the Nicollet County Historical Society to receive part or all of your estate if your designated beneficiarie(s) predecease you. 

“If any beneficiary named in this will is not living at my decease, then I give and bequeath to Nicollet County Historical Society, a Minnesota non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 41-0871254, with offices at 1851 N Minnesota Avenue, Saint Peter, MN 560082 any bequest which said beneficiary would have received if he or she had survived me.”
