Leave a Legacy

Make a lasting impact for generations to come.

“Sparkling spangles on the river ripples; grass on the great meadows, every leaf laden with irised dew-drops,

each an eye with all the landscape — every tree, bush, leaf, and flower, mountain, hill, meadow in sight pictured with all its colors in each crystal mirror.”

The Idaho Heritage Trust was initially funded through generous private and corporate donations, and we rely on private donations of all sizes to help us look to the future. Here’s how you can help with a legacy gift during your lifetime or through your estate. Your gift may be eligible for tax deductions and/or a tax credit.
