The Legacy Society for Alaska
"The real purpose of long-term, legacy giving is to help and
inspire those who have done well in Alaska to do something good for Alaska.” -Diane Kaplan, Rasmuson Foundation
Society for Alaska is made up of individuals who have included The Alaska
Community Foundation and its Affiliate communities in their estate
planning through bequests, outright gifts, or life insurance and retirement-plan beneficiary designations. You can leave a legacy in a variety of ways, either
through unrestricted gifts to ACF, giving to an existing ACF fund or by
creating a new fund with ACF to support the community, causes and organizations
you care about.
Leaving a charitable legacy does not require large
income or a vast estate. All that is required is the thoughtful intention to
make a difference for generations to come. As part of The Legacy Society for
Alaska, donors become part of a community of like-minded individuals and
discover uncommon opportunities to learn, connect and share. Too often those
who leave a legacy are not honored during their lifetime. The Legacy Society
for Alaska is a way of shining a light today on a gift for the future.
