Gifts that Bridge the Present and Future
You can create a lasting charitable legacy to ensure good causes have the resources they need for years to come. Individuals and families who wish to continue investing in Greenville’s future long after they are gone may join the Legacy Society.
It’s simple to join. The first step is to arrange for a planned gift to the Community Foundation of Greenville or any fund held at the Foundation. The second step is to inform us of your planned gift.
Planned gifts can be made in a number of ways. The most common are bequests by will or revocable trust, beneficiary designations of IRA, retirement plan assets and annuities, gifts of life insurance, charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts, and retained life estates. You may also choose to simply leave the remaining balance of your donor-advised fund to the Community Foundation of Greenville.

There is no minimum amount required for a planned gift. Your membership in the Legacy Society will be recognized in our Annual Report to the Community unless you choose to be listed as an anonymous member. Legacy Society members will be invited to a special annual event sponsored by the Community Foundation.
