Did you know that when you’re asked to contribute to the United Way that you can designate where your contributions go? That’s right. YOU can control your contributions. Choose the Erie Canal Museum as your designated recipient.

Planned Giving

Help us have a more secure future through planned giving. One of the simplest ways to give to the Erie Canal Museum is through a bequest in your will or a provision in your living trust. You may indicate that the Museum is to be the recipient of a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or a particular piece of property.
