Leaving Your Charitable Legacy

The Community Foundation offers customized and personal charitable solutions to donors interested in current and planned giving opportunities. Through a planned gift to the Community Foundation, you can create a future fund that will award grants in perpetuity to causes you care about or choose to support one or more endowment funds within the Community Foundation.  

Planned giving through the Community Foundation allows you to establish a charitable legacy, while also providing you with significant financial and tax benefits. Your planned gift may be in the form of a bequest by naming the Community Foundation not only in a will or trust document; life income plans, such as a charitable remainder trust or charitable gift annuity; charitable lead trust; gifts of life insurance; retirement plan assets or any other type of charitable planned gift. In addition to working with us, we recommend you consult with your attorney and tax/financial advisors to determine the best vehicle to meet your goals.

The Legacy Society recognizes the following individuals and couples who have generously made provisions in their estate plans to establish a charitable legacy through the Community Foundation.
