THE LEGACY SOCIETY

The Legacy Society at Solano Community Foundation (SCF) honors those who have chosen to make a planned gift to SCF through their estate plan. That is the sole criterion for membership in the Legacy Society.  You can use your gift to honor the name of your family or loved ones, or you may choose to be anonymous. Your planned gift puts you in good company today.  Later, your gift will do good works in our communities for generations to come.

>  These gifts provide tax benefits to the donor; immediate federal tax deductions, avoidance of capital gains, and lessen or eliminate estate taxes.

>  Legacy gifts can serve a specific geographic region, community population, and/or changing needs of the community.

>  Planned gifts can be as simple as assigning a specific amount of money or a certain percentage from your estate.

>  Planned gifts can also be insurance policies, IRAs, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead gifts, and similar instruments.

>  Bequests to Solano Community Foundation are exempt from estate tax.

>  There is no minimum amount required for a Legacy Society gift.

>  Continue to help nonoprofits make important differences in the quality of life in Solano County.
