Join the Legacy Society

Many of the gifts we receive come in the form of end-of-life bequests, small and large, from caring donors like you, who wish to create a legacy in their community. In creating an end-of-life gift, you have chosen to support your community and the causes you care deeply about long after your lifetime.

Your community foundation strives to make our community a better place in which to live and we take seriously our commitment to you the good stewardship of these gifts, forever. We invite you to join the many others, like you, who care so deeply about our community.


Ways to Join

Becoming a member of the Legacy Society is easy.  Make a planned or deferred gift in any amount to the Foundation.  There are many possible methods for making a gift, either during your lifetime or though your estate.  The Foundation will create a fund, grow it through investment, and ensure your charitable intent is honored forever.  Your generosity will have lasting effectiveness and will be multiplied many times over.

Many gifts work well as charitable vehicles in your estate plan, each offering unique advantages and tax benefits, and many do not reduce current income.  Options include:

  • Bequest
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Gift Annuity
  • Retirement Funds
  • Life Insurance
  • Real Estate/Property
