Investing for the Future

Timothy Nolan and his wife, Carolyn, are the youngest members of the John P. McGonagle Legacy Society. The couple joined shortly before their 2011 wedding, naming St. Francis House as the beneficiary of their life insurance policy.

“Carolyn and I wanted to make our commitment to St. Francis House a permanent one,” says Tim, who began volunteering here when he was a student at Boston College 15 years ago. Over time, his involvement has grown from serving meals to co-founding the Friends of Frank, a group of young professionals who plan the annual Shooze Cruise and Race to the Finish Line marathon events.

Today, Tim serves on our Board of Directors. The decision to join the Legacy Society was easy, Tim explains, comparing our work to TV shows that restore cars or antiques. “St. Francis House does human restorations, getting people back on their feet and shining them up inside and out. The potential has been there all along, it just needs to be revealed.”
