IPS Establishes Public Service Legacy Society

Early in 2010, the Institute for Public Service established the Public Service Legacy Society to recognize individuals who have dedicated much of their life to public service and want to ensure that when they are gone their resources will continue to benefit others in a way that reflects their life’s work.  Members make a provision in their estate plans for the Institute for Public Service or one of its agencies in a variety of ways that works with them and their personal situation. Visit the Legacy Society page to find out more.
