Through the efforts of the Guthrie County Historical Village Foundation, we continue to help shape the future through researching and preserving our past and present history.  Since 1968, we have been sharing our local treasures, generously donated by family and friends of our community, with the world and with your support, we can continue our work for future generations.


The Guthrie County Historical Village Foundation is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that funds the many restoration projects the Village undertakes.  You can contribute to the Village’s future by planning for a special gift, such as a bequest, in your will or a trust that pays you income. There are many creative and flexible planned-giving options that can benefit you and the Village.


One easy way to include the Village in your estate plan is to name the Guthrie County Historical Village Foundation as a beneficiary of your donor-advised fund, retirement plan, IRA, or life insurance policy. Doing so is as simple as filling out a beneficiary designation form from your plan provider or administrator.


Your generosity enables us to continue our preservation efforts, protect our collections, offer innovative educational programs, and so much more. No matter how you choose to show your support, know that your support will help us create a legacy today and leave a lasting legacy for tomorrow. 


Cash donations can be dropped off at the Village during our open hours or can be mailed to us:
