Harold Whitworth Pierce (1885-1958) – Banker & Philanthropist
Harold Pierce lived in Milton, Massachusetts, and was a partner at Tucker, Anthony & R.L. Day, a Boston investment banking and brokerage firm. When he died in 1958, Pierce left his estate to endow The Harold Whitworth Pierce Charitable Trust. The Trust offers grants primarily for projects that will produce long-range benefits through leverage of the Trust’s resources. Grants are made in the areas of education, green and public spaces, capital projects, research, and arts education. Grants are made for specific programs, for “seed money,” and for capital projects, especially those that can reduce operating costs. Many of the grants focused on institutions and programs in the Boston area.
We honor Mr. Pierce for his philanthropy. He is clearly a Legacy Champ. If you want to be a Legacy Champ in your own special way, then contact The Mendel Law Firm, L.P., for a free initial consultation on estate planning, trust planning, and/or probate issues.
