Join the Legacy Society

Legacy giving only requires a thoughtful intention to make a difference by identifying a charitable organization in your will or estate plan.  These gifts do not require a large income or vast estate in order to have meaning and impact for generations to come.  They can also be made to honor other family members or close friends.  Making Community Foundation the beneficiary of part of your life insurance or retirement accounts can be a great way to make a gift while still taking care of loved ones.   If you’ve taken the generous step of remembering Community Foundation in your will, we’d love to be able to show our gratitude and keep you updated on our work.

Planned gifts can build your legacy.
