Making a Bequest to PAHF from Your Will or Trust... A bequest will make all the difference for the future of Pan Am Historical Foundation. Here's how to do it!

How it works:

  • Include a bequest to the Foundation in your will or trust.  
  • Make your bequest unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose here.
  • Indicate a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or a portion of the balance remaining in your estate or trust.


  • Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
  • You can modify your bequest to address changing circumstances.
  • You can direct your bequest to a particular purpose (be sure to check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).
  • Under current tax law there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.
