St. Simons Lighthouse Museum and Keeper's Dwelling

There are many ways to support the ongoing preservation, restoration, and educational efforts of the Coastal Georgia Historical Society.

Matching Gifts
Would you like to double or even triple the impact of your gift to the Society? Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage their employees, retirees, and board members to contribute to charitable organizations. If you are eligible for a matching gift program, complete your portion of the company provided form and send the required information to Kathleen Bennett at (912) 634-7096 or email [email protected].

Gift of Stock
Did you know that the Society accepts gifts of appreciated stock? Please contact our Office Manager, Marsha Johnson, at (912) 634-7090 for account information and instructions for your brokerage firm to make an electronic transfer of stock certificates. Once you have requested the transfer, please contact her so that we can properly identify and acknowledge the gift.

Planned Giving
The mission of the Society is to present and interpret the history and culture of Coastal Georgia and to preserve our treasured past for future generations. Please consider including the Society, a tax-exempt public charity, as a part of your estate plan. Or, you may want to play a part in maintaining and preserving the iconic St. Simons Lighthouse by making a bequest to the St. Simons Lighthouse Endowment Fund. For information on planning and gift options, please contact Kathleen Bennett at (912) 634-7096 or email [email protected].
