Join us as members of the Legacy Society.
Future gifts or contributions made through estate planning utilize one of the simplest and most popular methods of supporting the Foundation. These gifts have been as unique as the people who made them and continue to make an enduring impact in our community.
The Legacy Society recognizes members for their foresight and commitment to the future of our community: and individual or couple who names the Mackinac Island Community Foundation as the beneficiary of any type of planned or deferred gift from their estate, such as in a will, trust, or other planned giving instrument, will be honored with membership. Joining the Legacy Society is simple and easy:
Gifts to the community foundation are generally endowed and leave a permanent legacy in the Mackinac Island Community. Planned gifts can establish new funds or strengthen existing ones, can support your favorite organizations, or be unrestricted in nature. It’s up to you, and every gift, large or small, supports the cause you care about most, forever.
For more information about planned giving options or to submit your Legacy Society Form, please contact::
