What is the AHSGR Heritage Club?
In 2005, the International Foundation of AHSGR formally adopted the IFAHSGR Heritage Club. The purpose of the Heritage Club is to promote Planned Giving by providing special recognition to members who have participated in the IFAHSGR Gift Annuity Program or have made a provision to include AHSGR or IFAHSGR in their Will.
Why join the Heritage Club?
One reason is to guarantee the future survival of AHSGR for the long-term. It is, by far, the best repository of the information about the families and history of our German Russian Heritage. The Heritage Club assures that the future of AHSGR and all of its materials will always be available to our children, grandchildren, and future generations. Joining the Heritage Club is also a way to honor the memory of our German Russian ancestors and the values that we inherited from them.
How do I join the Heritage Club?
There are no dues. The first way to join the club is to include a provision in your Will making a bequest to AHSGR or IFAHSGR. This might include a bequest of a fixed dollar amount or a percentage of your estate, and might be a cash bequest or a bequest of other assets such as real estate or marketable securities.
A second way to join the club is to purchase a Charitable Gift Annuity. Please see the information on the Charitable Gift Annuity page for more details on this program.
If you have any questions about the Heritage Club, please contact a member of the Foundation Board of Trustees or the AHSGR office at 402-272-3363.
