Our Acorn Society honors donors who have established planned gifts or provided for the Foundation in their wills.

Making a planned gift is a creative and effective form of philanthropy, ensuring your generosity will leave a legacy for generations to come.

About the Acorn Society

Donors who have joined our legacy Acorn Society are demonstrating their abiding stake in our community by making a planned gift to the Foundation in their will or trust.

Acorn Society members are invited to participate in special events throughout the year that offer a deeper look at our region’s challenges and opportunities in the company of fellow donors.

We list the names of our Acorn Society members here and in our annual report. However, if a donor prefers anonymity, we are glad to respect this wish.

How to Join

Become a member simply by notifying us that you have included the Foundation in your estate plan or will, which you can do by completing this non-binding Statement of Intent. There is no minimum gift level and membership is lifelong, complimentary and nearly 100 strong. We hope you will join us.

Visit Types of Gifts to learn more about your options for planned giving, or contact us today.
