Legacy Society

Give to what matters… even 100 years from now.

More than great wealth, philanthropy requires a generosity of spirit and the desire to improve the quality of life for others. When you remember your community, favorite cause, or beloved nonprofit organization in your will, you support what you treasure, forever. You can tell us how you wish your gift to be used, or leave an unrestricted bequest that will address community problems as they emerge.

Even a modest bequest will grow, substantially, under our stewardship.  Over time, your generosity will generate ever-increasing grants to the cause or community you specify.

The Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have made plans to leave a gift to the community in partnership with the Foundation. This gift may be through estate plans, written wills, including the Foundation as a future beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan or IRA, insurance policy, remainder trust, Charitable Gift Annuity, or other similar planned gift.

We gratefully acknowledge the compassion, generosity and foresight of our Legacy Society members*:
