Historical Preservation Trust


The Historical Preservation Trust was founded in 1973 for the principle purpose of preserving the historical and architectural features as well as the unique character of the historic buildings. Since its inception, the trust has provided more than $1.7 Million for restoration and preservation projects. 

The trust is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are therefore considered tax-deductible. Donors may designate gifts to the Capital Improvements Fund or Major Repairs Fund if they wish for their gift to be accessible for immediate needs or to the corpus earning investment income for long-term growth. All undesignated gifts are placed in the Major Repairs Fund.

As you reflect on how you have benefited from your membership in The Woman's Club, we hope you'll consider taking the steps necessary to leave a gift to the Historical Preservation Trust or The Woman's Club of Fort Worth from your estate. This is a lovely way to forever benefit The Trust, and help guarantee that The Woman's Club buildings are preserved for future generations of club women. 

You are encouraged to discuss this opportunity with your family and/or your financial advisors. Forms are available in the Business Office or on the members-only portal of this Web site.
