The Chesapeake Legacy Circle recognizes those donors who have included the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in their estate plans through a legacy or planned gift. Over the years, dedicated friends have played an important part in ensuring the long-term stability of the Chesapeake Bay by including CBF in their estate plans with gifts of all sizes. Each gift plays a vital role in preserving the Bay for generations to come.
If you have already included CBF in your estate planning, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a Chesapeake Legacy Circle member allows us to recognize your commitment in a few simple ways, and your participation encourages others to follow the example of your leadership.
These donors have named CBF as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts, or gifts of life insurance.
Once you complete your estate plans, please fill out our member profile form to let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in the Chesapeake Legacy Circle.
Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.
Benefits of membership in the Chesapeake Legacy Circle include an annual luncheon, recognition in CBF's annual report and invitations to special events.
The most important benefit you will receive from joining the Chesapeake Legacy Circle is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting contribution to our long-term success.
