Whether or not you write your memoir, in the end, you are remembered by your acts of kindness and generosity, for the lives touched and by the causes you advance. You can partner with Elder Care Services to improve the quality of life for seniors with a planned gift or by establishing an endowment in your name or in the name of a loved one.
Your legacy gift will be managed by the Community Foundation of North Florida and each year, proceeds will be distributed to Elder Care to help us fulfill our mission. For example, a $10,000 contribution will provide an annual gift of $500 for perpetuity. The donor would be recognized as a Lifetime Contributor. ECS will list the donor or an honored loved one in its annual report, unless anonymity is requested.
The advantage of an Endowment Gift is that the principal remains or increases in the trust and a guaranteed 5% transfer from the interest earnings is annually available to the agency. The gift, especially if it is a memorial gift, will continue to give and be recognized without additional effort.
If you are interested in establishing an endowment in your name or a loved one, please contact our Financial Office (850-245-5926) or the Community Foundation of North Florida (850-222-2899).
