The Trexler Trust or is a philanthropic effort of General Trexler, "who died in 1933 leaving a residuary estate of approximately ten million dollars. His will directed that the residue should be help upon a perpetual trust, the income from which would benefit his wife during her lifetime and the citizens of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania after her death. At present, the value of the Trust's assets is approximately $100 million dollars. During the 75+ years of its operation, the Trust has aided the work of Lehigh County charities by providing them with over $100 million in funding including nearly $35 million to the City of Allentown for the 'improvement, extension and maintenance of all its parks.' General Trexler's generosity toward the citizens of Allentown and Lehigh County continues through his Trust."
