By joining the Trader Society you will be Honoring Tradition, Forging Innovation in Accessibility, and Lighting the Way for Future Generations

Clovernook Center’s legacy society is named for our beloved founders Georgia and Florence Trader, who in 1903, had a vision far ahead of their time. They believed that all individuals who are blind or visually impaired should be able to thrive and lead active, productive and independent lives.

Remembering Clovernook Center in your will, a trust, or through an annuity is one of the most meaningful ways you can ensure a future that is universally inclusive and accessible for those who are blind or visually impaired for generations to come.

By supporting Clovernook Center’s mission and vision in this way, you are creating a legacy for the principles and values most important to you. Thank you! You can find the Trader Society Bequest Intent Form here:

Planned Giving Frequently Asked Questions

No. A popular choice is stating a planned gift as a percentage, which will automatically adjust no matter what the future brings.

Many people choose to set aside a percentage (for example, 10% or 20%) for their favorite causes, while still leaving the majority of their assets to family and friends. Or you could choose to make a charitable gift of whatever balance remains in a retirement account, which also saves on taxes.

You can ensure that your planned gift is made only after you know the assets won’t be needed by your spouse or partner.
