Legacy Society & Planned Giving

A legacy gift is a charitable vision that serves as a permanent force for good for generations to come.

The MetroWest Legacy Society was established to recognize and honor those individuals during their lifetimes that have chosen to make an investment in the future of our communities through the Foundation for MetroWest. Members of our Legacy Society can rest assured that their original intent will be honored in perpetuity, keeping their name and fund protected and relevant to the issues and communities they support.

Becoming a MetroWest Legacy Society member is easy. All we ask for is a statement of intent to leave a gift to the Foundation through a bequest, life insurance, or another planned gift option. Your membership can be anonymous if desired.

For more information on planned giving and becoming a member of the MetroWest Legacy Society, contact Lee Gagen, Director of Development.
