What will your legacy be?
The South Dakota Community Foundation’s Legacy Society honors and recognizes those who have made planned gifts to the SDCF. It’s our way of thanking our donors now for their efforts to make South Dakota a better place in the future.
Being a SDCF Legacy Society member connects you with other like-minded donors who are interested in improving South Dakota. We hold events throughout the state each year to build relationships, celebrate philanthropy, and thank you for your support of South Dakota nonprofits and the SDCF.
Planned gifts can take many different shapes. The SDCF can help you:
- Include a donation in your will or trust
- Designate a donation through a life insurance policy, IRA or retirement plan
- Select family members and advisors to stay involved with gifts and grants
As always, giving through the SDCF also reduces the work you have to do to set up and maintain a fund. It may also help the funds more easily transfer from a person's estate to the charity after their death. Taking steps to make a planned gift now also has tax advantages.
