The Frances Bolton Society
In 1957, the Accokeek Foundation was established by private citizens who sought to preserve the view from George Washington’s Mount Vernon and to protect the Maryland shoreline from over development. During the past 50 years, this vision has grown to encompass wide-ranging education programs in agriculture, conservation, and history, all of which focus on the theme of “people shaping the land, land shaping people, over time.” Planned gifts have made much of this possible, and the Accokeek Foundation now has a goal of raising $5 million to ensure future financial strength and sustainability.
You can leave a lasting legacy by making a bequest or other testamentary gift to the Accokeek Foundation. Ways to give include:
- making a specific gift of cash, securities, real estate, or other property through your will, codicil, or trust instrument

- naming the Accokeek Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy
