Leave Your Legacy

When you make a bequest or other planned gift to the Bay Area Community Foundation, you become a valued member of our Legacy Society. As a Legacy Society member, you are among a visionary group of individuals dedicated to shaping a brighter future for our Bay Area community.

Where to Begin

Becoming a Legacy Society member is a straightforward and impactful process. You can do so by including the Bay Area Community Foundation in your estate plan through your will or trust. Alternatively, you can make a contribution through charitable gift annuities, life insurance, retirement fund assets, or a charitable remainder or lead trust.

Once you’ve made your decision, kindly inform us about your plan so that we can officially welcome you into our Legacy Society. It’s as simple as that.
