Legacy Society


Perpetual Support for Your Community.



The Legacy Society recognizes all who have notified us that they have included the Community Foundation in their estate documents or other deferred giving plan. This Society represents the perpetual support these individuals will provide for east central Illinois through the Community Foundation.

We invite all community members to consider leaving a legacy gift through the Community Foundation of East Central Illinois.

Joining our Legacy Society is easy—it requires just two steps.

  1. Include the Community Foundation in your estate plan through your will or trust or make a contribution via a charitable gift annuity, life insurance, retirement fund assets or a charitable remainder or lead trust.
  2. Inform us you have made these arrangements and let us know if you would like your name included in future listings of the Legacy Society, or if you would like to be included in future meetings and gatherings. We are happy to respect your wishes if you would like to participate anonymously.

As a beneficiary of your deferred gift, the Community Foundation is charged with the legal and fiduciary responsibility of carrying out your wishes. The Community Foundation of East Central Illinois is committed to recognizing and addressing community needs and identifying high-impact funding opportunities. Our permanence, flexibility and expertise allow us to help you “put your money where your heart is,” perpetually.
