Legacy Giving

By leaving a legacy gift, you can create an impact for future generations to experience and have  lasting change. A planned gift is established now and will benefit the community long after a donor’s lifetime.

The Paul Clarke Legacy Society was established to recognize the generosity and vision of donors, like Paul Clarke himself, who made a commitment to our community through the lasting impact of a planned gift. It is comprised of individuals who have made known their intent to create permanent funds at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne – either during their lifetime or through estate planning.

Becoming a member of the Legacy Society is easy. By notifying us of your gift through a bequest, charitable trust, life insurance, or other planned gift, and completing a ”Dry Fund” agreement, you can become a member of the Paul Clarke Legacy Society and have the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a gift to your community that will last forever.
