The donors who choose to make a legacy giving commitment believe in our shared responsibility to leave this place better than we found it.

Through a planned gift from your estate, Community Foundation Sonoma County will carry out your vision and bring inspiration and practical solutions for the future by supporting the causes, and places you care most about for decades to come.

Your gift creates an enduring legacy, offering hope to people and communities who need it most, and supporting organizations working to solve our most pressing concerns.

How to Leave a Legacy

Working together, we examine your philanthropic interests and priorities, your long-term goals and desired impact. We can evaluate your assets, changing circumstances and optimal strategies for giving. You may choose your level of public acknowledgment, and family involvement.

We invite you or your professional advisor to contact us to learn more.
