Legacy Society

Leaving a legacy can be powerful. The act of caring for generations to come and providing for the future of others is not only admirable, it is purposeful and significant. When you designate a gift in your will or estate plan to the Charlevoix County Community Foundation, you are leaving a legacy that will directly benefit Charlevoix County and all of the people who live here. You also join those who have gone before you, encouraging growth and sustaining the beautiful landscape of life in our region.


To honor all of those who include the Charlevoix County Community Foundation in their future giving plan, we have created the Legacy Society. This group is made up of any individual or couple who designates a future gift to the Community Foundation in their wills or estate plans.  Learn more about how to leave a legacy and joining the Legacy Society.
