Legacy Society

A legacy gift is a planned future gift that designates some part of an individual's estate as a donation to a nonprofit. Individuals who have named the Community Foundation as the beneficiary of a legacy gift make up the members of our Legacy Society. 



Our Legacy Society provides a way for the Community Foundation to recognize and thank those very generous individuals who have provided for a gift to the Foundation that takes effect upon the individual's death. The deferred gift may be used to create a new fund or to add to an existing Community Foundation fund. 


Your Legacy Gift will:

  • be carefully invested and administered with distributions made according to your intent;

  • carry on your philanthropic charitable goals;

  • continue to make a difference in our community.
