The Easiest Way to Make an Impact

A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

Interested in helping the causes you care about through Rose Community Foundation but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

Benefiting from the Foundation's oversight, your bequest can be unrestricted or designated for a specific nonprofit organization, philanthropic cause or for your donor-advised fund for your loved ones to direct in the future.

This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the free guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.

An Example of How It Works

See How It Works

Couple smilingWhen Tom and Martha got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved their favorite organization and decided to include a bequest of $75,000 to us in their will.

As Tom and Martha's family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security. They met with their attorney and simply revised the Bequest Language so that their gift to their favorite organization was now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing when they die, their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
