Leaving A Legacy

Planned Giving and the LCFEF Endowment

Making a gift to the Endowment Fund often appeals to individuals who understand the power of investing for the future. Since its inception in 1992, hundreds* of forward-thinking individuals have contributed to this vision. This is an on-going campaign, seeking like-minded investors in our community’s future.


Simple ways to make a planned gift to the Endowment Fund includes gifts of cash, appreciated assets and life insurance. Charitable lead trusts and charitable remainder trusts are other ways you can contribute to the LCFEF Endowment while concurrently improving your own and/or your family’s financial situation.

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments but what is woven into the lives of others.”

– Pericles
