Hank and Rebecca Conn

Named in Honor of Hank and Becky Conn (pictured), who made a generous planned gift for the University of Louisville’s Speed School of Engineering to establish the Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research, this Society recognizes alumni and friends who have included the University of Louisville in their philanthropic plans through various types of planned giving. Among these are outright bequests, gifts of appreciated assets, gifts of retirement plan assets, gifts of life insurance, and gifts created by life-income agreements and trusts for all purposes consistent with the University’s mission. More information on these ways to give may be found by exploring the links on this website, or by contacting plannedgifts@louisville.edu or kathryn.sides@louisville.edu.

Each year, the Conn Legacy Society hosts an annual recognition dinner. Photos from the 2017 dinner, held in mid-September at Big Spring Country Club, when lapel pins were presented to all Conn Legacy Society members, are found here.


Regional Conn Legacy Society Events

New this year, the Conn Legacy Society will also host two informal regional events. The first, held on Thursday, October 26, 2017, featured local historian Tom Owen, who narrated a motor coach tour of the Belknap Campus, followed by a cheese and wine reception at the University Club. Photos may be viewed here.

Scheduled for May 17, 2018, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM at the University Club, is a discussion on “Memory Loss and Aging” with Robert P. Friedland, MD, professor of neurology at the University of Louisville School of Medicine and director of UofL Physicians’ Memory and Alzheimer’s Center. Plenty of time will be provided for questions. Attendance is limited to the first 50 registrants, and free parking is available. To register, click here.
