The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa's Legacy Society recognizes donors who have made arrangements through their estate planning (such as a bequest, a trust, a retirement plan, insurance policy or some other form of deferred gift) that support the Community Foundation. Since estate gifts are often made after the donor's death, the Legacy Society allows the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa to recognize those individuals who are planning to make a difference in this community in perpetuity.
For nearly half of a century, the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa has made it possible for generous and thoughtful individuals and families to realize their charitable giving dreams. Through permanent gifts to the Community Foundation, they have provided for the future of their community. Their legacy is one of philanthropy, of opportunity, and of providing a better quality of life for untold numbers of residents of Northeast Iowa.
The Legacy Society is composed of caring individuals and families who have made formal plans to leave a gift to the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa. Members of the Society are recognized in the Community Foundation's Annual Report and other publications. The staff of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa is available to Legacy Society members and their financial advisors to discuss questions and concerns regarding estate planning and giving.
It is a special person who provides for the future of his or her community. Now, through the Community Foundation's Legacy Society, such thoughtful and generous planning and provision can be recognized.
