About Us…

LEAVE A LEGACY® is a public awareness campaign to encourage people to leave something in their wills to support causes about which they care. It supports nonprofit organizations and professional advisors as they educate their constituents and clients on the importance of leaving a will and considering a gift to charity.

The Planned Giving Group of Connecticut is the central point of communication for statewide LEAVE A LEGACY activities. Each of the seven LEAVE A LEGACY regions has its own co-chairs, committees and budgets. The campaign, which culminates in June with the Governor proclaiming LEAVE A LEGACY CONNECTICUT month, is co-chaired by Lyn G. Walker, a partner with the law firm of Shipman and Goodwin, LLP, and a member of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, and Jennifer A. King, VP, Masonic Charity Foundation. Business and community leaders including legal and financial advisors serve on the LEAVE A LEGACY CONNECTICUT committees.
