Legacy Circle

Legacy Circle


We’re thrilled that you want to help preserve South Dakota history. By joining the Legacy Circle, you can help promote lifelong learning and an appreciation of the past. You don’t have to be a millionaire. We think you’ll be surprised by the huge impact you can make. We would love to visit with you today about your charitable dreams!

The Legacy Circle recognizes those generous individuals who are leaving a future legacy to the South Dakota State Historical Society. We will recognize a bequest intention or other planned gifts of any size with membership in the Legacy Circle.

We have several planned giving options available, including the following:

  • Bequest in a will or trust

  • Designation as a beneficiary in an insurance policy or retirement plan

  • Life income agreement

  • Life estate gift of a home or farm property


Becoming a Legacy Circle member by giving in any of these ways is a deeply personal decision.

If you're ready to start the conversation, please contact us at (605) 773-3458. We would be honored to speak with you.

If you have already planned such a gift, please let us know so that we can thank you for your generosity and enroll you in the Legacy Circle.

Yes! I am interested in becoming a Legacy Circle member.
