The Buel Society

Would you like to have a lasting impact on children and families?

Please consider including CJR in your will or estate planning.

CJR was founded through the generous legacy of Miss Mary T. Buel of Litchfield.

At the turn of the 20th century, Miss Buel left her land, farmhouse and funds to provide a place to help children. Over the years, others have included CJR in their wills, created charitable trusts, and established charitable gift annuities with the final goal of providing important and lasting benefits to CJR and the children, youth and families it serves. The vision and spirit of generosity demonstrated by such special friends makes a critical difference to CJR’s ability to fulfill its mission of care and to enhance the scope and quality of its services to benefit young people.

The Buel Society recognizes those who have included the Connecticut Junior Republic in their estate plans.

Members of The Buel Society are recognized in CJR publications (or may remain anonymous), receive invitations to special programs and events and are considered among the closest friends of the organization.
