HBS grad, WWII vet leaves lasting legacy
CRTs are a flexible form of planned giving, in which the return on a gift invested through the Harvard Management Company pays the donor variable income for life, after which the remainder is given to HMS.
When his life-income beneficiary died this year, HMS received $1.1 million to create the Charles A. Tawney and Margaret Wilson Tawney Scholarship Fund. The fund will be directed toward a scholarship in either public health or general practice, as Tawney specified.
Tawney was born in McKeesport, Pa., a small town outside of Pittsburgh. He moved to Boston to earn his MBA at Harvard Business School and then settled in New York City, where he worked as a foreign bank examiner for National City Bank, now PNC. During World War II, Tawney served as an Army lieutenant colonel. He retired in Seminole, Fla., where he was an active member of Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church.
