Planned Giving

Planned Gifts to the OAH

With a planned gift to the Organization of American Historians, you have the power to make a lasting impact on the field of American history. By including the OAH in your estate plans, you can become a valued member of the Raintree Society. Your planned gift ensures the continued operations of our community, supports groundbreaking historical research, and empowers us to provide engaging educational programs for future generations.

Join us in sustaining the future of American history. Your support plays a vital role in upholding our mission of excellence in scholarship, teaching, and the presentation of American history, even in challenging economic times and a rapidly changing environment. In addition to making unrestricted gifts, you can designate your contribution to specific funds or initiatives that support future programming, fostering growth and providing valuable resources for upcoming historians.

Many of us owe our professional journeys to the guidance and inspiration of mentors or advisors. Through a planned gift, you can honor the legacy of those who have shaped our careers, whether they are OAH members or individuals who have been positively influenced by a history professor or teacher.

Together, we can secure the long-term stability of the OAH, honor the impact of mentorship, and provide valuable opportunities for future historians. Make your planned gift today and shape the future of historical scholarship.
