Create a Legacy – The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina

Create a Legacy

We can help you create a gift that will last well beyond your lifetime.

You can establish and name a new fund or contribute to any of the Foundation's permanent funds. The Foundation also offers ways to give that provide income to you or a loved one now and a charitable impact in the future, creating a legacy without risking your personal financial well-being.

Review our types of funds and charitable products.

You can add meaning to your gift by using it to honor a special friend or loved one. You may be able to save money on income, gift, and estate taxes and redirect those amounts for use in ways you choose. You can be assured that:

  • Your gift will be carefully invested and administered.
  • Distributions will be made according to your intent.
  • Your family members can be involved in continuing your philanthropic traditions.
  • You may be able to accomplish all of your charitable goals with a single gift.
  • Your gift will continue to make a difference locally, nationally and even internationally.

Individuals who inform us of their plans to contribute to Western North Carolina's future by including the Foundation in their estate plans or by establishing a deferred gift are invited to become members of our Legacy Society.

Whether you make a bequest or create a comprehensive estate planning strategy, we can help you create a gift that fits your interests and financial means.

The Legacy Society honors a special group of people who have arranged for a future gift to The Community Foundation by bequest, charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, retirement assets, life insurance, life estate or other deferred contribution. We celebrate these charitable legacies, which will carry on a donor’s generous spirit.
