Legacy Society

The Legacy Society honors and recognizes individuals who have provided for the Witte Museum through their will, life insurance, trust, charitable gift annuity, retirement plan, family foundation, donor advised fund or other planned giving arrangement. Gifts can be designated for the Witte’s general purposes or restricted to a specific area, such as endowment.

Legacy gifts of every amount help ensure that the Witte’s tradition of promoting life-long learning through innovative programs, exhibitions and collections in natural history, science and South Texas heritage continues for future generations.

Those arranging a legacy, or planned gift, are eligible for recognition in the Legacy Society simply by informing the Witte that they have included the museum in their plans. Legacy Society members are recognized at the annual President’s Dinner and in other ways specifically designed for them.

Witte staff members are happy to provide you with sample bequest language for remembering the Witte in your will or to talk to you and/or your advisor about a wide range of options to help you meet your charitable giving and estate planning goals.

For more information please contact Heather Russo, Chief of Advancement at 210.357.1851 or email
