The Legacy Society

Your planned gift to Silicon Valley Community Foundation will have meaning and impact for years to come. We honor those who have made a lasting commitment to our community by including charitable gifts to the foundation in their estate or by irrevocable gifts to our Community Endowment Fund of $10,000 or more.

Those who remember the foundation through a will, trust, designation or other planned gift, or give to our Community Endowment Fund, are invited to join in the community foundation's Legacy Society, recognizing this special form of lasting philanthropy.

Involvement in the Legacy Society gives you the opportunity to enjoy the company of others who, like yourself, care about leaving a legacy to protect and strengthen this community. Each year, the community foundation holds an exclusive annual event for Legacy Society members. Members are recognized in community foundation publications and at events such as our annual meeting.

You may always choose to remain anonymous in your philanthropy with Silicon Valley Community Foundation. However, participation in the Legacy Society can be an inspirational experience, and may encourage others to look toward the future and how they too may have an enduring impact on the causes they care about.
