Leave a Legacy

Planned Giving

Oklahoma Humanities has served Oklahoma for nearly 50 years, offering lifelong learning opportunities based in the rich and deep scholarship of the humanities disciplines.

One way that you can leave a legacy is by endowing an Oklahoma Humanities program with a bequest. This can be as simple as naming Oklahoma Humanities as a beneficiary on your retirement plan or in your will. Your gift would then be invested and grow over time, allowing you to continue to support Oklahoma Humanities in perpetuity.

A legacy society has been created to thank our long-term supporters who have identified Oklahoma Humanities in their estate plans. In gratitude, we recognize the founding members of this society:

Connie Fisher, Sand Springs
Ann Thompson, Oklahoma City
Martin R. Wing, Tulsa

We appreciate their generosity and hope that you, too, will consider a legacy gift to Oklahoma Humanities so future generations will have cultural opportunities and experiences readily available to them. Please contact our office if we can assist you in any way: (405) 235-0280.
