Our Legacy Society recognizes all those who have extended their charitable giving beyond their lifetime in some manner. It includes all donors who have established an endowment fund during their lifetime, advised our staff that the Community Foundation is in their estate plans, or made a gift from their estate into an endowed fund. These gifts will benefit Northern Colorado and the Eastern Plains communities far into the future.

Interested in becoming a part of this list of strategic donors? The Community Foundation would be honored to help you put a plan in place to leave a legacy that will shape the future of the region.

To learn more about planned giving, contact Ella Fahrlander at (970) 488-1979.

“We believe it’s important to try to make a better world for all people; through volunteerism and financial contributions, we have been able to directly see the results of philanthropy. We hope our charitable fund continues through our children and grandchildren.”
