Planning your giving, creating a legacy

Many of our donors and fundholders become committed to a particular cause based on their own experiences. Want to help a community you care about? Want to support conservation efforts in a specific region? Or perhaps help fight a specific disease? A Legacy Fund enables you to support programs, causes, and communities you are passionate about, for generations to come.
