The Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty’s Legacy Society recognizes those who have remembered the Community Foundation in their will or estate plan. While we honor those who have notified us of their plans via our membership application, we also appreciate those who wish to remain anonymous.
Legacy Society members are invited to a special annual recognition event, as well as other Foundation events throughout the year. Legacy Society members are recognized in our annual report and on our website and receive regular communications from the Community Foundation. In addition, legacy pins, showcasing the Foundation’s logo are provided to those recognizable donors.
People choose to support charitable causes for a variety of reasons. Maybe you give to show your compassion for the less fortunate or for a particular cause. Maybe you feel that you owe something to society or maybe you benefit from the tax incentives offered for charitable gifts.

The Community Foundation receives gifts of all sizes. Whether you are considering a gift of cash, securities, closely-held stock or real estate, all gifts are important to the work of the Community Foundation.
