Plan Your Legacy

Many people ask themselves how their philanthropy can continue to benefit our community after they are gone. We can help you continue to make a difference through your giving for years to come.

We can work directly with you or through relationships with your professional advisors to ensure that your charitable giving will continue to support the causes or organizations important to you.

Endowing a fund ensures that the principal is never touched, while the fund can grow through wise investments.  Other options are available based on the wishes of our donors. Download Our Legacy Brochure

MCF Legacy Society

Hundreds of people have made the Manatee Community Foundation a home for their legacy giving.

An invitation to join is extended to all who have already established a gift or intend to create a fund at Manatee Community Foundation through their will, estate plan or a life income agreement. Members have the option of remaining anonymous.

Read our short article: “Three Approaches to Your Charitable Legacy.”

Gifts of all sizes are important and welcome. Disclosure of gift amount or type is not required. Legacy members are celebrated at our annual Legacy Society Luncheon and, if they choose, are recognized in our publications and receive invitations to other Foundation events.

It is easy to get started or to get more information.

Contact Jennifer Abbott, Director of Philanthropy, at (941) 747-7765 or to arrange a phone appointment, Zoom session, or in-person meeting with a member of our team.
