David C. and Jane L. Knowlton Legacy Society

Of all the gifts you have ever given, a bequest (a gift you designate in your will) may be the most meaningful one you will ever make.

Through a bequest, you can remember loved ones in special ways, perpetuate your values, and help ensure the future of Hospice of Jefferson County and the special programs and services it provides.  At the same time, bequests can help you obtain additional income and/ or tax benefits.

You can create your own legacy by joining the David C. and Jane L. Knowlton Legacy Society.

Mr. Knowlton, a well known and respected civic leader, was a founding father of Hospice of Jefferson County.  Mr. Knowlton passed away in 1999 under the care of Hospice; his wife Jane passed in 2001.  Upon their deaths, the Knowlton's left a bequest to the Hospice Foundation to help it carry on its mission in the years to come, and to inspire others to consider making Hospice part of their legacies.

There are a variety of vehicles for creating a legacy restricted and unrestricted bequests; endowed bequests, contingent bequest, specific bequests, residuary bequest, honorary or memorial bequests, or general bequests.  The first step toward leaving your legacy is to make sure you have an up-to-date will and estate plan.  Be sure to consult a qualified advisor for help.
