Define your purpose. Create your legacy.

Stacks Image 3390
A legacy is a gift you leave behind expecting it will benefit future generations.  At the same time, not expecting anything in return but a personal satisfaction that perhaps someone in the future will benefit from your actions.

Think of John F. Kennedy and the Peace Corps or Harvey Milk and LGBTQ civil rights movement. They died before their legacies were fulfilled, but they will be forever revered for their efforts.

Your legacy – it is how you will be remembered and the contributions you made to society while you were alive and through your estate after your death.

Gift Planning
A personal process of defining a legacy that reflects your life's work, values and commitments. Not planning means letting someone else plan for you, and in estate planning, that means the government's plan. For the LGBTQ community, the government's plan is likely very different from what we would want, especially since the laws related to LGBTQ relationships and adoptions vary from state to state and may not be consistent to federal laws.

Our Fund's Basic Guide to Gift Planning for the LGBTQ Community in South Florida is designed for donors to stimulate their philanthropic thoughts in a organized manner as they begin their gift planning process.

Download your copy here.


Including our Fund in your estate plans means you join a wonderful community of thoughtful and generous people who want to leave a legacy or compassion and care. They believe that someday there will be full equality for LGBTQ people and their families.

As a Legacy Society member, you receive annual acknowledgement in Our Fund publications, invitations to donor events and briefs, as well as our enduring gratitude.

It is our responsibility to secure our community's future.

Be a philanthropist.
Make the connection.
