Build a lasting legacy of giving.

When you make a provision for a gift to the Hartford Foundation as part of your will, trust, or estate plan, you become a member of the 1925 Society, a special group of individuals who care about strengthening our community and providing for its future for years to come.

The Foundation works with you and your professional advisors to fulfill your deepest intentions for charitable giving to support specific causes and organizations or provide for the community at large. 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 website (unless you prefer anonymity) and are invited to our 1925 Society reception and other special events.


We gratefully acknowledge these donors for their foresight and leadership in creating an enduring legacy for Greater Hartford.
