From the press release:

In addition to recognizing the Trust’s founding and current volunteers at the celebration, the Trust will unveil its new Legacy Society, which provides a vehicle for planned giving.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust was established June 17, 1974 as the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Foundation. The Trust has located 70 founding volunteers – participants through 1977 – and invited them to the Founders Day event at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio.

“The founding volunteers are preservationists who saved the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and began its restoration and public tour program,” said Celeste Adams, president and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. “Their efforts strengthened historic preservation throughout the Oak Park and River Forest community.”

In addition to celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2014, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is celebrating its Legacy Year – the 125th anniversary of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio.

“As we celebrate two important anniversaries, we begin a formal recognition of those who have informed us of their intent to include the Trust in their wills through planned giving,” said Tom Gull, Frank Lloyd Wright Trust director of development. “The Trust’s Legacy Society provides an opportunity to make a personal and lasting commitment to the future of the organization.”

The Trust launched its Legacy Year celebration with the April opening of the Studio Balcony for special tours at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. The anniversary All Wright Housewalk, May 17-18, 2014 featured eight private homes and three public buildings all designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Trust will continue its Legacy Year activities with Museum Opening Day to commemorate the day on July 17, 1974 when the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio opened for public tours. On July 17, 18 and 19, residents of Oak Park and River Forest will be invited for complimentary tours of the Home and Studio as a thank you for their support over the last 40 years.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is a Chicago-based not-for-profit organization that provides public tours and educational programs at major Wright-designed structures, including his Home and Studio (1889/1898), in Oak Park, Ill.; The Rookery Light Court (1905) in the Chicago Loop; Unity Temple (1905-08) in Oak Park; the Frederick C. Robie House (1908-10) in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood; and Emil Bach House (1915) in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood. For more information, visit flwright.org.
