The members of the Legacy Society at the Community Foundation of Western Nevada are our most valued donors. These generous individuals are helping to build the future of the Community Foundation while their gifts provide support to the causes near and dear to their hearts in the many years to come!
Community Foundation Legacy Funds ensure your philanthropic intentions are carried on far into the future, exactly as you intend. The Legacy Society has grown to include more than 100 individuals and families and we are grateful for their confidence in the Community Foundation to carry out their charitable goals. Each year we gather in the Spring to thank our Legacy Society members through an annual appreciation event exclusively for them. This year’s party is hosted by Community Foundation Board Vice Chair Teresa Mentzer and her husband Stan, pictured above, who are Legacy Society members themselves. We thank them both for opening their home for this intimate and exclusive gathering!
If you have included the Community Foundation in your estate planning and you haven’t let us know yet, please reach out! I want to ensure you are receiving communications related to your Legacy Society membership, including an invitation to this annual event. I would also love the opportunity to sit down and learn more about you, your charitable goals, and thank you personally.
If you’d like more information about including the Community Foundation in your planned giving; you will find sample bequest language, access to our Wills Guide, and can read about the different charitable gift vehicles, on nevadafund.org.
