Gloria and Bill Howton give back forever with estate gift

Gloria and Bill HowtonGloria and Bill Howton touched many lives through their work and their civic service, Gloria in a variety of key roles at UAB and Bill as an attorney with Spain Gillon and later with Liberty National Insurance Company and Vesta Insurance Group.  They supported many causes and organizations during their lives, reflecting their love of this place they called home.

By letting us know about a planned gift from their estate, they became members of our Community Builders Legacy Society.  Following the death of Gloria in July 2011 and Bill in October of 2011, that $50,000 bequest was used to establish the Bill and Gloria Howton Fund.

Under the stewardship of the Community Foundation, their unrestricted bequest will forever touch the most important needs and best opportunities of our community.  The broad range of their interests will be reflected in the wide range of grants that are possible through a Community Fund.

Please let Erin Stephenson know if you have made a bequest to the Community Foundation in your will or estate plan or wish to do so now, so we can honor you as a Community Builder and invite you to one of our special events.
