The Legacy Society of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalme, Northern Liuetenancy, was established in 200 as a special way to:

            Support Christians in the Holy Land

            Have a lasting effect in the Order’s work in the Holy Land

Since it’s inception, 149 member fo contributed nearly $750,000 creating a fund balance of $901,000 as of June 30, 2016.  Our Lieutenancy’s Legacy Society has been able to send $165,000 in distributions (thorugh 2016) for Projects in the Holy Land

All distributions must comply with the Investment Policy and are made by the Investment Committee at the direction of the Lieutenant.

How the Society Works

Knights and Ladies of the Order can either make current gifts to the Legacy Society or make a provision in their estate plans. 

Donors can specifiy if their estate gifts are to be used immediately or added to the principal funds. 

To avoid competing with annual donations to the Order for support of the Holy Land, the recommended minimium amount for a gift to the Legacy Society is $2,500.
