Legacy Society

The Legacy Society of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque honors individuals who have committed to supporting our community forever through a gift from their estate. Often, these meaningful gifts go unrecognized because they come at the end of a donor’s life. The Legacy Society is our way of acknowledging your commitment to the future—today.

Becoming a member is simple. Include the Community Foundation as a beneficiary of a gift from your estate and notify us of your plan. We’ll add your name to a leaf on our legacy tree in honor of your dedication to our community’s growth. As your philanthropic advisors, we can also help you determine the type of gift to leave, show you the impact your gift will have, and share information about tax benefits.

Making a legacy gift reflects your ongoing commitment to your community and the causes you value most. It enables you to act on your convictions and make a difference for others many years from now.
