Create Your Legacy

Planned Giving

“If you are going to live, leave a legacy. Make a mark on the world that can’t be erased.”

Maya Angelou


By making a bequest to Mitchelville, a gift in your will or living trust, you ensure the story of Mitchelville where freedom began is told, and ensure American communities and our human spirit are both uplifted. As a thank you for your continuing friendship, you can create a will or living trust free online, and create a bequest with our partner FreeWill.

Beneficiary Designations

Designate part of or all your IRA, retirement accounts, bank accounts, or life insurance policies to Mitchelville, and make a meaningful gift for archaeological research, youth education, community events, and local economic and tourism impacts.

Gifts Already Made

You may already have included Mitchelville in your estate plan. We’d like to thank you for that, and invite you to join the Dr. Benjamin Williams Legacy Society.

Dr. Benjamin Williams Legacy Society

The late Dr. Benjamin Williams was an educator and historian, and a prolific speaker and writer. He used his talents to enhance awareness and to help develop the Mitchelville Preservation Project.

Dr. Williams was passionate about Mitchelville. He envisioned a destination where children and adults would gather to learn about this important part of American History.

Named in his honor, this Legacy Society in turn honors individuals who have made a commitment to Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park in their will or living trust (minimum $35,000). You can inspire others to follow your lead.

Other benefits include a personal thank you from HMFP’s Executive Director and Board Chair, a donor recognition digital badge, and free access to will and estate planning tools and resources.
