KHTI is the immediate descendant of the West Kingdom Land Fund of the SCA, Inc. It was formed to place legal separation between the SCA, Inc. and land ownership, and to provide more local control of the Land Fund. By having this "space" we gain some protection. If the SCA is sued, only the SCA's assets can be attached. If KHTI is sued, only KHTI's assets can be taken. KHTI is incorporated in the State of California as a 501(c)3 non-profit educational corporation with very similar goals to the SCA, Inc., but with the additional goal of raising money for purchasing and improving land for use by medieval re-creation groups. The solicitation and management of these assets is overseen by a Board of Directors, who are known formally and collectively as Kingdom Historical Trust, Inc. or KHTI. However, we still call ourselves the Land Fund; that's what we are.
