Our Legacy Society members are forward-thinkers who believe in the power of endowment to change lives and transform the community they love. They will define Broward’s future through their estate gifts to the Foundation.

The 2020 Legacy Society Luncheon honored bold, forward-thinkers whose estate gifts will transform the community they love. A record number of Legacy Society members were among the nearly 150 Community Foundation supporters who gathered at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel on Feb. 14 for the annual celebration of visionaries who have included the Foundation in their estate plan. This year’s luncheon showcased how estate gifts help Broward’s fragile environment with support for ECO Broward projects. The event featured Bryan Norcross, renowned meteorologist and hurricane specialist, who spoke about more opportunities to create bold impact for Broward's environment. Thank you to our generous sponsors: Presenting Sponsor - BNY Mellon Wealth Management; Program Sponsor - WLRN Public Media/Friends of WLRN; Champagne Sponsor -  John Knox Village; and Valet Sponsor- Zimmerman and Associates, Attorneys at Law.
