Legacy Society

The Legacy Society is comprised of donors who have made a planned gift to the Community Foundation of the Ozarks or one of its affiliates. The Legacy Society was created in 1990 to recognize and thank donors in their lifetimes and to offer the opportunity to introduce ourselves and learn more about the donor’s philanthropic wishes.

The Community Foundation of the Ozarks continues to  focus on the importance of expanding our planned giving commitments. In 2013 the CFO, along with other state members of the Missouri Alliance of Community Foundations, commissioned the Missouri Transfer of Wealth Study, funded in part by a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. The mission was to put a number to the wealth in our Ozarks counties, and the findings were astounding. You can learn much more about this study, and the impact you can have by considering leaving 5% estate gift to your local community foundation, at our Transfer of Wealth home page.

For more information, contact Winter Kinne at wkinne@cfozarks.org or (417) 864-6199.
