Create Your Legacy
You can live forever — by creating a fund now or by leaving a legacy at the Community Foundation.
Supporting the community through your will or beneficiary designations is an easy way to leave a planned gift and become a philanthropist.
Planned giving can be as simple as including a bequest to the Community Foundation in your will. You may leave a percentage share of your estate, specify the dollar amount, or designate the Community Foundation as a contingent beneficiary.
But planned giving encompasses much more than a simple bequest. With the goals of providing for your loved ones, reducing taxes, and remembering worthy causes, there are a variety of techniques available — with mutual benefit to you and your favorite charitable organization now and in the future.
By remembering the community in your estate plan, you can make a real difference to our region’s future. Our Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have named Rochester Area Community Foundation in their wills or planned gifts. We thank them for their foresight and encourage you to become a member.
