Planned Giving: Lock in A Legacy of Lasting Impact

Giving through your will is another powerful way to make a lasting impact.

By including a bequest to the Community Foundation in your estate plan, you lock in future support for an endowed charitable fund that will always be there to support causes important to you. Year after year, your endowed fund at the Community Foundation will fuel grants - in your name or anonymously, if you prefer - that shape a brighter future.

With your gift commitment you join our Legacy Society - visionary philanthropists we honor at our annual Legacy Society luncheon and who we invite to other events that showcase the enduring impact of local philanthropy.

How 'The Great Transfer of Wealth' Can Transform Broward

Our community, like many across the nation, is in the midst of a historic transfer of wealth. In Broward alone, a staggering $55 billion is projected to change hands over the next decade as baby boomers pass their wealth to loved ones.

This life-changing economic phenomenon is also an opportunity to transform our community with increased local philanthropy.

Dedicating just 5 percent of this wealth transfer to new endowments could create sustainable, permanent support to tackle today’s big challenges and shape a brighter future.
