Leave Your Legacy

Legacy Society


The Eau Claire Community Foundation established the Legacy Society to recognize its members who have made provisions in their estate plans to provide a gift to the Foundation for the causes they care about the most.

By including the Eau Claire Community Foundation in your will, establishing a charitable gift annuity or remainder trust, or naming the Foundation as beneficiary of a life insurance policy, members of the Legacy Society look beyond the here and now to the future well–being of the greater Eau Claire area.

We are grateful to the individuals and couples who remember the Foundation with a bequest from their estate, or who have indicated that the Foundation has been named a future beneficiary of their estate. These community benefactors have enriched the lives of others through their concern for the charitable needs of our community. For a complete listing, please see the Legacy Society Members page.

When you complete a non-binding, confidential Statement of Intent, we can honor your charitable wishes. You may establish a fund at the Foundation to benefit your favorite non-profit organizations or causes. Additionally, you may designate your legacy gift to any ECCF fund or our Operations Fund.

For more information, please consult the Plan With Your Advisor and Professional Advisors pages.
