Ways to Give Through Your Estate

Our Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have named Rochester Area Community Foundation in their wills or planned gifts. By remembering the community in your estate plan, you can make a real difference to our region’s future.

Membership in our Legacy Society is open to any individual or family who informs the Community Foundation in writing of their estate gift (see our Declaration of Intent form) to benefit this region through the Community Foundation. (* indicates recently deceased)
