TOPS® Heritage Society

Esther Manz At Desk

TOPS Club Salutes our Heritage Society members and friends

TOPS Founder, Esther Manz, founded an organization that touched the lives of millions of people, including longtime member Margaret Anne Cooper of California, who generously chose to give back to TOPS.


Inspired by Maggie's generosity, the Board of Directors established the TOPS Heritage Society as a means for members and friends of TOPS to join with each other to preserve and continue our rich tradition of helping other live their healthiest lives now and into the future.


TOPS invites members, chapters and anyone interested in keeping future generations healthy to join the TOPS Heritage Society (PDF). Those who contribute at $100 or above will be honored here and in TOPS News membership magazine. Additionally, those who donate $1,000 or more will be on the Heritage Wall at TOPS Headquarters in Milwaukee for years to come.

Donations listed below were received by September 30, 2016. Donations received after that date and before September 30, 2017, will be posted in October.
