Here for good.

Why planned giving? Because your will tells a story.

Your will is a testament to everything you have accomplished in your lifetime — it ensures your values live on. You can provide for the causes you support in perpetuity through planned giving. It helps sustain and support nonprofits, better allowing organizations to weather fluctuations in economic cycles and charitable giving.

Your planned gift is invested with us, growing over time to make an even greater difference and bestowed at timing you control through your planned gift.

We had the opportunity to film Virginia Hepner on the Coca-Cola Stage at the Alliance Theatre, where she talks about what it means to leave a planned gift.



“Think about the organizations you support every day. You have an opportunity to continue that great work by leaving a planned gift to an organization you care about – you’ll make a lasting impression. And I can’t imagine a better organization to entrust with your funds than the Community Foundation.”
