The Legacy Society

Becoming a Legacy Society member is easy. 
All we ask for is a statement of intent to leave a gift to the Owatonna Foundation through a bequest, charitable trust, life insurance or a planned gift option.  Donors become a member of the Legacy Society when they sign a form that states their intentions to make a gift from their estate. A “Living Legacy” is a gift of $10,000 or more that is given during the donor’s lifetime.

Members are recognized in the community in Owatonna Foundation publications and local newpapers.  You may always choose to remain anonymous in your philanthropy, however, participation in the Legacy Society can be an inspirational experience, and may encourage others to look toward the future and how they too may have an enduring impact on the causes they care about.

Your planned gift to the Owatonna Foundation will have meaning and impact for years to come. Involvement in the Legacy Society gives you the opportunity to enjoy the company of others who, like yourself, care about leaving a legacy to protect and strengthen our community.
