Financial Donations


The Dallas Historical Society relies on financial contributions to cover the costs of our programs and care of collections. We also accept donations of historical items, subject to certain conditions. We are a 501-C3 organization. Please send email to Karl Chiao, or phone 214-421-4500 ext. 101.

Tribute/Memorial Gift

A tribute or memorial gift to the Dallas Historical Society is a meaningful way to honor a friend or loved one. Or, celebrate any special occasion with a gift of membership. For more information, please contact Karl Chiao, 214-421-4500 ext. 101. For a gift membership please contact memerbship at 214-421-4500 ext. 101.

Planned Giving Program

Dallas Historical Society members and friends can help make a significant progress in preservation, education, and public access through gift-making in wills, retirement plans, life insurance policies or living trusts–all ways of planning for the future. A legacy can be as simple as a monetary gift to honor a parent, relative or friend, a life insurance policy, real estate or trust. If you would like to talk with us (confidentially and without obligation) about how your interests might contribute to the preservation of Dallas’s heritage, please contact our office.
