Build Your Legacy For Tomorrow | Impact The Community For Generations To Come

Leave a Legacy

Let your philanthropy live on for future generations. By partnering with the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County on gift planning, you can preserve your legacy for the causes you care about. There are numerous ways to organize your future giving that are mutually beneficial to you and your favorite charitable organizations from bequests, trusts, beneficiary designation on retirement accounts to life insurance. You can also fund your vision with appreciated securities or real estate.

Estate planning with the community foundation can be accomplished in a few simple steps:

  • Meet via phone, Zoom, or in-person to begin a conversation about the goals you hope to accomplish through your philanthropy.
  • The information you share will allow us to provide you with several strategic options to consider in partnership with your professional advisor. If you do not have a professional advisor, we can help facilitate an introduction for you.
  • Conversations can be tailored according to your timetable until a plan is developed that fits your individual needs.

Every step of the way, the community foundation wants to help you fulfill your philanthropic goals now and into the future.
