Legacy Society

Planned and legacy gifts are a way to make estate decisions now and for the future. This type of giving allows you to address family members’ needs and make a gift to benefit your community and the causes you care about most. You may make gifts to benefit any type of fund through a full range of planned and legacy gift options at Four County Community Foundation.

Planned and legacy gifts may be used to establish or add to any type of fund offered by the Foundation. To learn more about planned and legacy gifts, and how such gift plans may enhance your financial and estate plans, please contact Kathy Dickens at the Foundation for a confidential consultation.  You may also download and complete the Legacy Society Bequest Notification Form.  Return the form to our office in person, by mail, or email.  We will keep the information confidential.

Those who include Four County Community Foundation in their long-term charitable planning will be welcomed as members of the Legacy Society, a special group of visionary philanthropists who have named the Foundation as a beneficiary in their will, retirement plan, trust, life income gift, or other gift arrangement. We look forward to welcoming you to this special group and ask that you notify us should you qualify for membership or simply wish to receive further information.
