What's Your Legacy?

The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels’ Planned Giving program allows Kentucky Colonels to create a legacy that will last for generations. As a cornerstone of this program, The Legacy of Honor recognizes Colonels who have made a commitment of $100,000 or more through their estate plans (and who are age 65 or older) or through a gift made over two years.  These gifts can establish an endowment in the Colonel’s name for the Good Works category of the Colonel’s choice to benefit the hundreds of nonprofit organizations we assist every year. A named endowment allows you to leave your legacy to benefit any of the following:

Community Services

Disabled Support

Education Services

Support for the Poor

Create a lasting legacy for you and your family and transform the lives of needy Kentuckians in perpetuity.
