Planned Gifts

You can make an impact in your lifetime and beyond

At the Community Foundation we have the opportunity to help many of our donors establish charitable legacies through their estates. In fact, the majority of our Community Fund was created by generous donors who wanted to support the Greater Birmingham area in perpetuity.

These legacies can take many shapes. Our staff can work with you and your estate planning advisors to understand your interests and goals to ensure that your charitable dollars are used according to your original intent.

If you’d like to begin planning your legacy – or if you’d just like to talk about what’s possible – we’d love to meet with you, contact Brooke Coleman or Lora Terry.

Community Builders

When you inform us about your gift, you join a special group of generous and forward-thinking people we call Community Builders. Members are invited to events on issues in our community, have access to Foundation staff members as a resource for charitable giving and are acknowledged as special partners in philanthropy. You can also choose to remain anonymous – the amount of recognition you receive is completely up to you.

*Please note that the Foundation does not provide tax or legal advice. We encourage you to talk with your professional advisor.
