2014-2015 League Sponsorship: Living Legacy : Living Legacy
The Living Legacy Fund enables us to turn each dollar into many dollars. Your contribution becomes principal that is not spent on projects, but rather is invested to create income; income generated by these investments to support the League and its many worthy projects.
Why the Living Legacy Endowment Fund?
There are many ways the Fund benefits you as a donor:
- Ease of Participation: Living Legacy provides League members, sustainers, Charlottesville-Albemarle Area residents and businesses a convenient way to contribute to the League year-round, whether or not they choose to participate in other JLC fundraising events.
- Donation Flexibility: The Fund offers a range of diverse donation options to satisfy the needs of contributors who wish to support the JLC and their community for their lifetimes and beyond.
- Tax Benefits & Savings: Living Legacy Endowment contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Please check with your tax consultant.
- Celebration & Acknowledgement: This endowment fund gives donors a means and opportunity to recognize what is important to them - family, friends, special occasions, events, and remembrances.
