Legacy Society

Your planned gift to Community Foundation of West Texas will have meaning and impact for years to come. We honor those who have made a lasting commitment by including charitable gifts to the foundation in their estate plans.

Those who remember the foundation through a will, trust, designation or other planned gift, are invited to join in the community foundation’s Legacy Society. Too often, these gifts are unrecognized because they come at the end of the donors’ lives. The Legacy Society provides a way to recognize and thank donors during their lifetimes.

Involvement in the Legacy Society gives you the opportunity to enjoy the company of others who, like yourself, care about leaving a legacy to protect and strengthen this community. Members are invited to all Foundation events and are recognized in Foundation publications and on our website.

You may always choose to remain anonymous in your philanthropy with Community Foundation of West Texas. However, participation in the Legacy Society can be an inspirational experience, and may encourage others to look toward the future and how they too may have an enduring impact on the causes they care about.

Only a statement of intent to leave a gift to the Community Foundation of West Texas is required. No documentation of gift amount or type is necessary. Legacy Society members may designate the use of the distributions from their future gifts, or may leave the distributions to the discretion of the Community Foundation of West Texas Board of Directors. A Legacy Society gift may be used to establish a new fund or may be added to any of the Foundation’s existing funds.

If you’ve already included the Community Foundation of West Texas in your will, we encourage you to let us know so that we may honor you as a member of the Legacy Society.

Legacy Society members share a dedication to the South Plains area —but every act of giving is personal and unique. Contact us to discuss your preferences.
