Join the Legacy Society

Legacy Society Brochure-trailpic“By leaving a legacy gift to your community, you can make a difference for future generations and share the power and joy of living generously.”

THE LEGACY SOCIETY OF THE PARSONS AREA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION…
was established to recognize and thank those individuals who have chosen to continue to support the causes they care about when they are gone by making a planned gift today. Too often, these thoughtful gifts go unrecognized because they come at the end of a donor’s life. The Foundation’s Legacy Society is our way of acknowledging their commitment to the future – today. We hope it will encourage you to do the same. You do not need tremendous wealth to consider a legacy gift; whatever your financial situation, there are gift plans to fit your needs. A few ways include a bequest in your will, beneficiary designations of IRAs, charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities, and life insurance policies.

WHAT IS YOUR PASSION?
What do you care about in our community? The church where you worship, the schools, parks, museums, fairgrounds? Perhaps a local charity or organization that helped you or a loved one in a time of need. The Foundation already administers funds that support all of these causes and many others. Making a legacy gift is an opportunity to express your values and passions. We can help you establish a legacy of your own to ensure the things that are important to you continue to thrive and grow long after you are gone. Whatever your inspiration for giving, your legacy gift is an enduring testament to the causes you hold dear.

HOW TO JOIN…

After we receive your statement of intent, you will be contacted by our director to further learn your intent. Your gift can support whatever purpose you choose. You can establish a new fund and designate it to benefit specific causes or charitable organizations, leave it unrestricted and the Foundation will use it for the most pressing need at the time, or you can give to an existing Foundation fund having a mission you wish to support. We would like to recognize you in a way that is meaningful to you. Membership in the Legacy Society serves as an example for others to follow. If you prefer, we will honor your request for anonymity.

Our community is lucky to have PEOPLE LIKE YOU…
