The 1925 Society recognizes members of our community who have made plans to leave a legacy that benefits our community for years to come.

When you make a provision for a gift to the Hartford Foundation as part of your will, trust or estate plan, you join a special group of individuals who, like yourself, care about providing for the future and strengthening our community.

Your legacy can support specific causes and organizations, or provide for the community at large. It can include what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests within the context of your overall estate plan.  

Build a lasting legacy of giving.

The Foundation works with you and your professional advisors to fulfill your deepest intentions for charitable giving. Whether you want to include a simple provision in your will, create a charitable trust using complex assets, or anything in between, we can help.

1925 Society members are recognized in the Foundation’s annual report and web site (unless you prefer anonymity), and are invited to our 1925 Society reception and other special events.
