Strengthening our Legacy

The Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging received a $1.8 million legacy gift in 2010 from the Estate of Margaret Barnes. In the institute's history, the gift is second only to the initial bequest from the industrialist Benjamin Rose that established the organization.

The mother of Mrs. Barnes was a resident of the Margaret Wagner House in the mid-1980s.
