The Community Foundation of Broward's Legacy Society members believe in the power of endowment to change lives and transform the community they love. They help shape Broward's future through their estate gifts to the Foundation.
Here's why Larry Feuer of Fort Lauderdale says he decided to lock in his legacy through the Community Foundation of Broward:
“Like many people, I wasn’t sure how to use my estate plan to give back to the community I love – to establish my legacy of philanthropy.”
“The team at the Community Foundation of Broward showed me how easy it is to use my estate plan to create an endowed charitable Fund in my name that will live on forever.”
“I now have peace of mind knowing that when I’m gone, distributions from my charitable Fund will support the things I care about in Broward for generations to come – and my Fund will never dry up."
“Entrusting my legacy of philanthropy to the Community Foundation made perfect sense. The Foundation’s track record of financial prudence and philanthropic expertise will ensure my charitable wishes are fulfilled. That my impact never ends.”
“I cannot imagine a safer or more impactful way of helping my two million Broward neighbors.”
“It feels good to be bold!”
-Larry Feuer, Community Foundation of Broward Legacy Society member
Let’s Get Started…
The Broward we pass to the next generation will be defined by the long-term philanthropic investments we make moving forward.
You love Broward. It’s your home. If you want to create a legacy of bold impact that will last forever, here’s how to get started today:
1. Speak with your professional advisor (tax and estate attorney, financial advisor or accountant). Let him/her know that you are interested in creating a personalized endowed charitable Fund at the Community Foundation through your estate plan.
Your advisor can also help you sort through the many ways you can give. Cash, publicly traded securities, retirement plans, life insurance, real estate, stocks, closely held business interests and estate gifts are all potential ways to establish your charitable Fund at the Community Foundation.
2. Contact the Foundation directly to learn more about how you can use your estate plan to create a better Broward for future generations. Simply call Jennifer Powers, Philanthropic Services Manager, at 954-761-9503 or email her directly at email@example.com
3. Once the Foundation is included as a beneficiary in your will, trust, insurance policy or retirement plan you will become a member of the Community Foundation's Legacy Society. To date, the Legacy Society has more than 154 members who have made estate gift promises in excess of $288 million.
