Echo Society

Those who choose to create a legacy by making a planned or estate gift are named to the Echo Society. Just as an echo is a lasting sound, the Echo Society is a way for you to leave a lasting legacy.

The Echo Society honors the extraordinary generosity of those who make an endowed lifetime gift or leave all or a portion of their assets to the Foundation through a will or estate plan. These funds are endowed and only the earnings are used, so the funds continue working for the community forever.


If you would like to talk with the Foundation about establishing an endowment through a planned or estate gift, contact us. You can also find sample bequest language in the Advisors section.
