NSPS Foundation, Inc., Legacy Program

from Joseph M. Dolan, P.L.S., Chairman

What is a legacy?

The dictionary says: noun, plural legacies.
  1. Law: a gift of property, especially personal property, as money, by will; a bequest.
  2. Something that is handed down or remains from a previous generation or time.
I think of establishing a legacy as being remembered for the accomplishments and contributions achieved by an individual. Being certain that one is remembered in a manner they determine, and not depending on others who might not get it exactly right. Most surveyors and mapping professionals I know have chosen their field because they love it! They would never be truly happy doing anything else! Many of us own our own firms, or are principals in large multi-disciplined companies, and have been very successful financially. In some cases our children have decided to enter other professions and are financially independent. Some of us have no heirs to whom we can leave anything!

It is never too early to think about what your legacy might be! Perhaps you want to establish a scholarship in your name, or fund a project. The choices are limited only by your imagination! The choices do not have to be limited to your profession, and you don’t have to fund them all at once! You can set up a schedule of donations over time to reach your goal!

How do you want to be remembered?

Think about it! Contact the Foundation to discuss your ideas, and we will help you make them a reality! more
