NHS Endowment Fund

The Northfield Historical Society, Inc. is an IRS non-profit, tax-exempt corporation which was charted by the State of Vermont on April 14, 1988.

The objectives of the Society are to:

  • Collect

  • Preserve

  • Interpret

the materials connected with the history of Northfield, to be used both for education and enjoyment by present and future generations.

Oftentimes individuals wish to create a memorial to a loved one or give back to the community part of one's heritage. Recognizing this desire, the Society's Board of Managers has established a vehicle to accept gifts and bequests.

An endowment fund has been created and is recommended for any of the following remembrances:

  • As a personal bequest in your will

  • As a funeral tribute in lieu of flowers

  • In celebration of an event in one's life -- anniversary, birthday, graduation

  • As a tribute to a loved one to be recorded in the Memorial Book

  • In anonymity for one's own personal reasons

  • As a personal gift

Any bequest or gift to the Society's endowment fund will be one of two types:

  • Unrestricted, which means the Society may use the gift for any Society purpose

  • Restricted, which means the Society can only use the gift for a purpose or purposes specified by you
