Would you name a fund in memory or honor of someone close to you? What organization, cause or passion would you support? What is your story?
Philanthropy requires a generosity of spirit and the desire to improve the quality of life for others, both now and in the future. Through the Foundation, it's simple for you to establish meaningful impact throuh a planned gift to a current fund or your own named fund at the Foundation. Joining our Legacy Society only requires a thoughtful intention to make a lasting commitment to your community for the future. What better way to honor the passions and spirit of a family member or friend?
Choosing to make a planned gift reflects your ongoing commitment to your community and the causes you value most. It enables you to act on your convictions and create a lasting legacy that makes a difference for others in perpetuity.
The Legacy Society for Central Susquehanna Community Foundation is made up of individuals who have included the Foundation and its affiliate communities in their estate planning. Legacy planning:
- Is flexible and can be done through bequests, outright gifts, or life insurance and retirement-plan beneficiary designations.
- Allows you to give a planned gift to an existing fund or create a new fund to support your charitable interests.
- Ensures that funds or nonprofit organizations close to your heart benefit perpetually.
- Instills family philanthropic values.
