The Sibley Legacy Society
Your Legacy is Part of our Story
Established in 2013, the Sibley Legacy Society celebrates the legacy of William J. Sibley, an early supporter of the work of the Lucy Webb Hayes National Training School. He donated the money needed to build Sibley Memorial Hospital in memory of his wife, Dorothea Lowndes Sibley. The hospital was dedicated in 1894. The Legacy Society honors those individuals who secure the financial future of Sibley by making a life-income gift or gift through their estate. Because a legacy gift represents a lifetime commitment, the Sibley Legacy Society comprises donors of any age and gift amount.

It is our goal to work with you so we can ensure that we honor your wishes and apply your gift as you intend. Most importantly, notifying us of your bequest commitment allows us to thank you during your lifetime for your generosity.
