A Simple Way To Leave A Legacy

The important work of the GPHS is supported mainly by private contributions from individuals, and foundations. Your support is essential to our operation.

Please help us keep the stories and traditions of our remarkable community and its past a part of our lives today with a contribution.

We are indebted to our donors who have included the Grosse Pointe Historical Society in their wills and trusts. Insurance policies, IRA's, or annuities are an easy way to leave money to the Society. Future residents of Grosse Pointe will benefit tremendously from these thoughtful gifts to continue to preserve our heritage.
