Leave a Legacy

Leave A Legacy is a community-wide program to promote interest in charitable giving through a Will or an Estate. Leave A Legacy works hand-in-hand with Community Services Consortium and other nonprofit groups (including social service and art organizations, churches, hospitals, educational institutions and other philanthropic groups) to encourage this activity.

Charitable, nonprofit groups play an important role in our lives. These special organizations that are important to you rely on your continued financial assistance in order to continue their good deeds.

By leaving a legacy through a gift in your Will, you can continue to help organizations that are making an important difference in our community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Must I have an Estate to leave a gift?

An estate is simply a word used to describe any property, money or personal belongings that you may have at the time of your death. Anyone can arrange to leave a charitable gift through their estate when they pass away.

How do I leave a gift for an organization that I admire?

You can arrange for a gift in several ways, the most common being through a Will. Many people set aside a certain dollar amount. Others leave a percentage of their Estate or any assets left over after their family has been provided for. Some people will give a charity their home or something they won, like a car. Others leave a paid-up life insurance policy or other financial investment.

Who can help me arrange for a gift?

Please feel free to contact CSC Finance Director Debbie Jackson at djackson@communityservices.us if you have any questions or wish to leave a legacy with Community Services Consortium.

While Leave A Legacy concentrates on gifts through your Will or Estate, you can also help the nonprofits you care about in various ways:
