You can achieve your personal philanthropic goals and leave a lasting impact on the Keys community you love by including charitable giving as part of your estate plan. CFFK’s Legacy Society was created to recognize and express appreciation to donors who have created permanent legacies at your Community Foundation. 

If you wish to leave a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime, include CFFK in your estate plan and ensure that your charitable vision endures forever. You can establish a gift with cash, real estate, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after distributions to other beneficiaries.

You become a Legacy Society Member by simply stating your intent to establish a gift to CFFK in your estate plan. No documentation of the amount or form of gift is required.  Click on the button below to complete the form and return to CFFK.

“We chose CFFK to be stewards of our legacies because of the outstanding job they do in recognizing and responding to the needs of our community. Our goal is to partner with CFFK in encouraging diversity by supporting local educational, historical and cultural organizations that bring to life the city’s motto of ‘One Human Family.’

These two philanthropists are 2019 recipients of CFFK’s Partners In Paradise Award.

“As a years-long volunteer for the FKSPCA and board president, we decided a legacy endowment fund set up through CFFK was the perfect solution. I can now rest assured that our estate will be managed wisely and responsibly.”

Jane Dawkins and Charles Newman wanted to ensure their passion for animals would be tended to after they were gone. Charles passed away in 2019, and upon Jane’s passing, monies from her estate will support the Florida Keys SPCA.
