The Legacy Society honors those who have made a lasting commitment to The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region. Individuals who designate a gift to The Community Foundation through a will, trust, retirement plan beneficiary or other planned gift are invited to join our Legacy Society.
Membership is voluntary and free. Bequest gifts of all sizes are important and welcomed. Disclosure of gift amount or type is not required. Legacy members will be celebrated at an annual Legacy Society reception. Members will also be recognized in publications and receive invitations to other Foundation events.
