Planned Giving


One vehicle for giving is through endowments–long-term ways to donate, protect, and invest assets. The HSPBC is fortunate to have two such vehicles. The Operating Endowment has long been presided over by the Board of Governors with professional advisors who direct the investment of the assets.

James Augustine Ponce

In 2017 we established a permanent endowment, The James Augustine Ponce Endowment for Exhibition Development at the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, in honor of the late James Augustine Ponce.

Endowments provide a long-term location for assets to be donated, protected and grow. The principal funds are reserved by the Community Foundation, which will direct their investment. The resulting growth will be used for HSPBC initiatives toward the fulfillment of our mission.

Your contribution to either endowment fund is secure. Its growth will ensure the preservation of the Archives, fund future exhibits, and provide free programs to increase students’ understanding of Palm Beach County history.

Please contact President and CEO Jeremy Johnson to learn how your investment will provide an unprecedented opportunity to link our shared past to future generations, at 561.832.4164 ext.101 or via email.
