The Lenox Legacy Society has been created to help the James Lenox House Association (JLHA) continue to honor the vision of its founders as well as the vitality of the older adults it serves, and to help ensure the continued well-being of those who depend upon James Lenox House or Carnegie East House.
All those who have included the JLHA in future plans already are members of the Lenox Legacy Society. We hope that those who have not yet done so will consider a bequest.
There are several ways to remember JLHA. Discussions with your family and your attorney or other professional advisors can help you decide the approach that would best fit your situation.
Options include making a specific bequest of cash or other assets in your will, which could be either unrestricted or designated for a specific purpose, or creating a Charitable Lead Trust or Charitable Remainder Trust arrangement. Making your gift directly from an IRA or 401(k) may offer tax advantages.
Consulting with your attorney or professional advisor is important because you will need legal and tax advice. JLHA does not give legal or tax advice.

“Like Mary Lenox Sheafe, our Founder, many of our board members, residents and other benefactors have shown they know the true meaning of caring. Many residents at James Lenox House and Carnegie East House frequently say ‘How blessed we are to be living in such a special place.’”
