About the Taylor Society

Taylor Society recognizes and honors individuals who have made planned gifts to SAGE. These visionaries make a timeless commitment to current and future LGBT older adults by making SAGE a beneficiary of their estates.

SAGE named Taylor Society after an educator, author and longtime, quiet SAGE supporter, “C.T.” Taylor. C.T. passed away and left his estate to SAGE. Although he shunned public recognition, C.T.’s family asked SAGE to tell others about his gift in hope that they will follow C.T.’s example.
