The Legacy Society

For more than 35 years, the Community Foundation of Sarasota County has helped individuals be the one to create a lasting impact.

The Legacy Society of the Community Foundation was founded to recognize friends and benefactors who use the Foundation to carry out their estate plans. 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 throughout their lifetimes.

The only requirement to become a member of the Legacy Society is a statement of establishment or intent to leave a gift to the Foundation in one's estate plan. No documentation, amount or type of gift is required. Members can be anonymous if they so desire. 

Setting up a future fund provides:

  • Donor peace of mind about how your gift will be used in perpetuity.
  • A lasting tribute to your philanthropic legacy.
  • Tax benefits and tax-free income to you or your loved ones.
