We are proud to have such a large, diverse group of donors at the Foundation. Each individual, family, and business has issues and causes that they support that are personal to them, while also believing in the greater impact of community giving. After the initial creation of the fund, we will work with you to ensure your giving is having the effect in our community that you want it to have, and help you with a plan for your legacy.

Succession Planning

A succession plan is crucial instructions on what to do with the fund you advise whenever you are unable to continue being the primary steward. If the Foundation does not have a written plan in place after your death or incapacitation, we will do our best to honor your charitable intent, but it would be a guess and potentially not reflect your wishes. Triangle Community Foundation names legacy as one of our core values: We commit to the lasting impact we are making today and for generations to come, we honor the gifts left by visionary and forward-thinking donors in our region and encourage multi-generational giving, and we develop long-term, authentic relationships with all our partners. If you are a current fundholder and don't yet have a succession plan in place, please access our succession plan form here.
