"I hope you will join me in ensuring a strong and sustainable public television station for generations to come by including NHPBS in your estate plans."
— John Swope
One of the greatest compliments that John Swope ever received was from a former colleague at Chubb Insurance. They ran into each other on the street one day, and she said, "John, why didn't you tell me those were going to be the good ol' days?" During his 30 years at Chubb, 18 of them as president, Swope was committed to his employees and to creating a vibrant and engaging work atmosphere. That commitment to community is what still drives him today in retirement. Swope is very active in his home city of Concord, and also as a board member of New Hampshire PBS.
To honor Swope and his devotion to the future of NHPBS, station President & CEO Peter Frid and the NHPBS Board of Directors have established the John Swope Legacy Society. To help launch the Legacy Society, Swope is challenging viewers and members to name New Hampshire PBS in their wills or estate plans. For every new bequest naming NHPBS as a beneficiary, Swope will donate $1,000 to our Annual Fund, up to a total gift of $25,000.
“NHPBS is a time proven organization that contributes to NH,” says Swope. “It is an untapped resource and capable of doing much more. Life is about planning for the future. I hope you will join me in ensuring a strong and sustainable public television station for generations to come by including NHPBS in your estate plans.”
