Planned Giving / Legacy Circle

Nantucket’s historic architecture and sense of place is what I’ve loved and enjoyed for the past twenty years. My legacy gift to the Nantucket Preservation Trust will help preserve our island.” – Pam Waller, NPT Legacy Circle Founding Member

The mission of Nantucket Preservation Trust is to protect, promote and preserve Nantucket’s timeless sense of place, as embodied in its historic architecture. Achievement of this mission requires financial assistance not just through annual membership fundraising, but also with the aid of a sustaining endowment funded over time through major gifts, bequests, and planned gifts. Thankful for the timeless pleasures Nantucket has afforded them, Legacy Circle members create their own legacy by helping to ensure the island’s unique beauty endures for the benefit of present and future generations.
