Your Giving

Make an Impact Beyond Your Lifetime

Intrigued by the idea of leaving part of your estate to charity? We can help. We will work with you to understand your charitable dreams and make those dreams a reality.

Your planning and partnership with Truman Heartland Community Foundation (THCF) will enable you to receive a tax benefit during life, maximize your giving impact and leave a legacy forever.

For Good. Forever. Multiply and diversify the impact of your legacy giving by partnering with THCF. The Heartland Legacy Society (PDF) brochure illustrates how you can make a maximum impact after you are gone.

When you establish a bequest or other planned gift, you become part of the select group of community-minded individuals that make up our Heartland Legacy Society.

11 ways to leave a legacy impact:

Giving to your favorite causes and making a forever impact can be done directly to your fund or through a gift model that can provide tax benefits and even income during your life!

Bequest

You designate your fund at Truman Heartland Community Foundation (THCF) as the beneficiary of your asset(s) by will, trust or beneficiary designation form. Learn more about how a bequest works.

You can designate your fund at the foundation as the beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account or your life insurance policy. Learn more about how easy beneficiary designations can be in leaving a legacy.
