The Legacy Society
“One generation plants the trees,
another gets the shade.”
The Posey County Community Foundation (PCCF) created the Legacy Society to recognize individuals who share its dedication to our community. Members of the Legacy Society merit the Foundation's highest gratitude for their thoughtful investment in the future of our community.
What is a legacy society?
A legacy society is a program established by a nonprofit fund, organization, or foundation to encourage donors to leave estate gifts. A planned giving program is a great benefit, and thus a common practice of new or small foundations.
How does it actually work?
The donor grants a legacy gift through an estate plan by speaking to an estate advisor and contacting the PCCF. The donor then includes a bequest to the PCCF in their will. Upon death, PCCF establishes a fund in the donor’s name, or in the name of their choice, or puts the money towards an existing fund of the donor’s choice.
Who is part of the Legacy Society?
The members of the Society are and can include anyone that wishes to make a commitment to the future security of Posey County for years to come.
When should I make an estate gift?
Any time you draft or change your will or estate plan, you could consider charitable legacy gifts with the help of a legal advisor. If you notify us of your gift, you will be considered a member of the PCCF Legacy Society.
