Planned Giving

Leave a compassionate legacy for Hartford’s environment by becoming involved in KNOX’s legacy giving. All donors of planned gifts are honored as members of the Betty Knox Legacy Society and recognized in KNOX’s newsletter and website.

Your planned gift will sustain KNOX and ensure Hartford reminds a green and sustainable city for future generations. Benefits of your planned gift may also include tax benefits.

Planned giving strategies include:

  • Bequests
    • Create a bequest to KNOX in the donor’s will. The following wording is provided to assist you in working with your attorney, accountant, and other advisers: “I give and bequeath ___% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate (or the sum of __ dollars, $___) to Knox Parks, Inc., a Connecticut charitable corporation or its legal successors, for its general uses and purposes.”
  • Retirement Plan Assets
    • Name KNOX as a beneficiary of your IRA, 403(b), or 401(k).
  • Life Insurance
    • Name KNOX as a primary or successor beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy.
  • Memorial Fund
    • Set up a memorial fund in your name or the name of a loved one and direct how the funds are used. This can be a one-time spendable donation for the purpose of your choice or an endowment gift (minimum of $5,000) to create a permanent fund to support KNOX in perpetuity.
