John Hancock Legacy Society

Membership in our John Hancock Legacy Society is available for anyone making a planned gift, no matter what size.

Celebrate And Recognize

If you have made (or are thinking of making) a planned gift to our organization, please let us know. When you do, we want to honor you with complimentary membership in our legacy society, which celebrates and recognizes all those who have made planned gifts.

Preserve Your Legacy

If you have included our organization in your will, trust, life insurance policy or retirement plan or have made any other planned gifts, you are eligible for membership.

The amount of the intended gift is not important. What is crucial is that you have chosen to create a legacy with us. We want to start our work now of honoring that decision and preserving that legacy. You can remain anonymous if you choose. No one will know about your intention or the size or scope of your gift unless you want them to.

Contact Us

Please call 419-423-1432 or email to make sure your wishes are followed and also to be sure you won’t miss out on any of the special things we do just for members.
