Leave A Legacy

A Gift from your Estate will Change Lives


The Oscar B. Greenleaf Memoral Scholarship Fund

If you name the Community Foundation or a named fund in your will, you will automatically be recognized as a member of the Greenleaf Legacy Society and distinguish yourself as someone who has made a conscious decision to leave a lasting legacy in your community.

Named for Oscar Benton Greenleaf, the Greenleaf Legacy Society is a group of visionary people who have named the Foundation in their estate plans, either by will designation or through a trust or other deferred gift.  These planned gifts are of inestimable importance to the future of our region.  Planned giving offers many personal, financial and tax benefits to you, your family and your heirs.  We can provide you with more information about bequests, charitable trusts that can provide income to you now and create a fund later on, how to use a life insurance policy to create a charitable fund, and other ideas.
