Lou Teti Honored with Super Door Opener Award at the CCCF Annual Meeting
October 2018 – The Chester County Community Foundation marked its 25th Anniversary and Annual Meeting on Monday, October 22, by honoring two outstanding individuals with the Super Door Opener Award.
Louis N. Teti, Esq. of West Chester and L. Peter Temple, Esq. of Kennett Square were recognized for their ongoing efforts in opening doors to legacy philanthropy.
A partner at MacElree Harvey in West Chester, Teti represents individuals and businesses in a wide range of estate, business succession, and tax planning matters. He speaks frequently on estate planning, tax planning, estate administration, and philanthropic planning.
Teti serves on the Board of Directors of Bishop Shanahan High School, and he is currently Chair of the Planned Giving Committee at Paoli Hospital. He is a Fellow of The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. Teti has been named to the PA Super Lawyers list every year since 2005, and he has been consistently named one of the Main Line Today’s Top Lawyers.
Teti has served as President of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Chester County Bar Association, and he is a past Chair of the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. He has also served as Chairman of the Pennsylvania Bar Foundation and the Chester County Bar Foundation. In other volunteer leadership capacities, Teti has served as Chair of the Board of the Chester County Community Foundation, as well as Chair of the Board of the Paoli Hospital Foundation, where he continues to serve on the Board. He also served on the Board of Trustees of Malvern Preparatory School for nine years.
Teti’s legacy message is simple, and it explains why he is a Super Door Opener: “Learn more about the Community Foundation. It’s an easy, rewarding way to create a charitable legacy and to encourage intergenerational family philanthropy. Life would be a lot kinder and gentler if everyone thought about their legacy and considered creating a donor-advised family fund at the Chester County Community Foundation.”
