Honorariums and Memorials
Donations may be made to honor someone designated by the donor. After making your donation, if you wish to make it an Honorarium or Memorial donation, please send an email to be determined with the name of the Honoree. If this is a living person, please include their mailing address so that SCGS can send them an acknowledgment card.
We have four levels of Sponsorships: Palmetto $100.00; Gold $75.00; Silver $50.00; Bronze $25.00. All donors will be acknowledged in the Program Book. Visit our Workshop page here.
A bequest is one of the easiest and most meaningful ways to make a gift to South Carolina Genealogical Society. Gifts of any size made through a bequest help ensure that the Society receives valuable support in the future, support that will benefit genealogists and historical researchers far in to the future. Donors can make a bequest by simply including a provision for the Society in their wills or trusts. Donors can choose to give the Society a specific dollar amount, specific property, or a percentage of their estates. Your bequest is a gift not just to the Society but to all genealogists, historical researchers and to your own posterity. For more information about bequests, contact our Treasurer at to be determined.
