The 1880 Society (formerly the Legacy of the Innocents Society) is a group of donors who have made a gift to Home of the Innocents in their will or estate plan. These generous individuals have had the foresight to ensure that the Home will be supported into the future and that our mission of caring for children in crisis will carry on forever.
Membership is obtained by filling out a Bequest Intention Form and sending it to the Home. We officially recognize members (if that is your wish) and keep them apprised of all the activities and events that are available to the society.
In addition to knowing the impact of your donation will support the services of the Home for years to come, members receive the following:
- Invitation to our Food for Thought program: a series of lunch meetings held on our campus, discussing critical issues in our community that the Home is addressing through our programmatic efforts. Examples include homelessness, foster care, refugee services and many more.
- Invitation to participate in specialized service programs that support our organization in a variety of ways. Examples include assisting with our Holiday Magic program, beautification projects on campus and helping with events.
- Invitation to the Home’s fundraising events and special activities like the 1880 Society Breakfast, with reserved tables and space when appropriate.
More Than a Gift
While your donation is vitally important to us, we want to afford you the opportunity to experience firsthand the many things your gift will accomplish for the Home. If you choose to participate, you will learn so much more about our mission and how we are addressing many critical needs for children and families in our community. We believe this will enrich your philanthropic experience and provide you with opportunities to become engaged with the work for which you have so generously provided support.
