What is The Glatfelter Legacy Society?

The Adams County Historical Society established the Glatfelter Legacy Society in 2019 to honor its longtime Executive Director, Dr. Charles H. Glatfelter (1924-2013). This program was created to recognize those who are planning gifts to the Adams County Historical Society that will ensure the preservation and safekeeping of our local history for generations to come. Gifts include bequests, retirement plan assets, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, or other charitable planned gifts. 

Although the Society receives and recognizes thousands of gifts from community members each year, others come at the end of the donor’s life. The Glatfelter Society provides a way for the Adams County Historical Society to thank these generous donors during their lifetimes. 

Members of the Glatfelter Legacy Society are, if they wish, recognized in Adams County Historical Society printed materials, and are invited to special periodic events.
