The John & Edith Titley Society is an honorary society that recognizes charitable donors of planned gifts. Each year the society hosts an annual reception to recognize these legacy donors and provide an update to SCORE’s stratgeic direction. Nearly $3,000,000 in expectancies has already been committed by the current members.

Titley Society

SCORE supporter John H. Titley made a bequest to the SCORE Association in 2001. This planned gift launched the legacy of philanthropy for SCORE and the formation of The SCORE Foundation.

Titley volunteered for the Medford, Oregon chapter of SCORE “Counselors to America’s Small Business” for more than 20 years. During his tenure, he volunteered as a counselor, chapter leader and SCORE Association Board Director and then president in 1987. In the introduction to the book A SCORE History: The Story of 25 Years of Volunteer Service, Titley describes SCORE volunteers as the men and women that make a difference.
