LACF Legacy Circle

Make a Gift for Future Generations


The Legacy Circle recognizes the extraordinary commitment of people who include Los Altos Community Foundation in their estate plans. The generous, far-reaching support provided by Circle members allows LACF to build its positive influence on our community long into the future.

Gifts of support via planned giving are critical to the long-term growth of LACF. As a legacy gift donor, you become a permanent member of LACF’s Legacy Circle. Your name will be engraved on the Legacy Circle’s donor board which is displayed in the lobby of the Community House.

You will also be listed as a donor in LACF’s Annual Report and invited to, and honored at, the Legacy Circle’s exclusive annual event.

Those individuals or families who make a one-time gift of $100,000 or more to the LACF Community Endowment Fund (via bequests, memorial gifts, or gifts during one’s lifetime) will be forever recognized as a Community Visionary.
