Create a piece of Tulsa History

Become a permanent part of the Tulsa Walk of Fame at the Tulsa Historical Society through our brick dedication program. For just $100 you can create a unique and personal piece of Tulsa history for your self, friends or family. Each brick is personalized to celebrate a wedding or a birth, honor or memorialize a friend, carve out a name for yourself, document an important occasion or share a bit of personal wisdom.

Planned Giving

The Society collects and preserves artifacts of Tulsa history as it preserves memories and experiences of Tulsans through themes of our common experience with exhibits, onsite and offsite educational opportunities and research resources. We support the mission of THS so that future generations can be enriched by our past and become inspired to impact the future. Please consider protecting Tulsa’s history through making a lasting gift that will perpetuate the mission of THS through our endowment

THS has been selected to participate in the Planned Giving Partnership Program offered through Tulsa Community Foundation. This partnership allows us to provide professional guidance and assistance to those who desire to make a commitment to us through planned gifts such as wills, trusts, gift annuities, as well as many other tools. Many of these strategies can be customized to you to achieve your family, financial, and charitable goals, while providing many tax benefits. For more information contact Michelle Place at 918.712.9484.
