Including a charitable bequest in your will is a simple way to make a lasting gift to your community. When you make this gift through the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, we establish a special fund that benefits the community forever and becomes your personal legacy of giving.
How it Works
You include the Community Foundation in your will as a bequest. We can help you or your attorney with recommended language. Download the Sample Testamentary Language (.PDF).
Upon your death, we establish a special fund in your name, in the name of your family, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. Your gift is placed into an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from the fund are used to make grants addressing community needs, or carried out per your wishes.
Your gift – and all future earnings from your gift – is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.
