Envision your Legacy
Creating a philanthropic legacy through Triangle Community Foundation allows you to support the causes you care about, and sustain our community, long into the future. In the process you can realize financial, tax and estate planning benefits.
We work within a full range of planned giving vehicles, including charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts.
Donors who make planned or legacy gifts will become a member of the Foundation’s George H. Hitchings Legacy Society. As a member, you will be recognized in the Foundation’s Annual Report and other publications, and at special member events. The Foundation will, of course, honor your request for anonymity if so desired.
Naming the Foundation in your will or living trust is a very popular way to support the community. By leaving a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or what remains after other bequests have been satisfied, you can ensure that your legacy will live on.
Giving through a charitable trust allows you to receive income for the life of the trust, while the remains go to your community, or to make gifts now while transferring assets to beneficiaries later.
Gift of Life Insurance
For those whose need for life insurance has decreased, making a gift of an unneeded policy can be a convenient and effective way of meeting your charitable goals.
