The Legacy Society   

The Legacy Society of the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty honors individuals who have committed to supporting our community forever through a charitable gift in their estate plan.  These meaningful gifts often go unrecognized because they come at the end of a donor’s life. The Legacy Society is our small way of recognizing and celebrating your commitment to the future, today.

Becoming a member of the Legacy Society is simple. Include the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty as a beneficiary in your estate plan and notify us of your intentions. Your name will be listed as a Legacy Society member on our website and in Foundation publications in honor of your commitment. Of course, you may also remain anonymous if you prefer.

Leaving a Legacy: The Humphreys Family Fund

Christine & Robert Humphreys were long-time West Chester residents and valued members of our community. After her husband’s sudden passing in 2008 Christine established a Donor Advised Fund, the Robert & Christine Humphreys Family Fund, at the Community Foundation. The non-endowed fund allowed Christine to begin building a source of charitable funds that she could distribute over time to causes she and her husband cared about, while also providing immediate tax benefits. In 2016 Christine approached the Community Foundation about reviewing her fund and discussing the impact she wanted to make in the community. Christine made the decision to endow her fund and allow it to grow, creating a self-sustaining source of charitable giving for years to come. She wanted her fund to support “parks, pets, and quality of life” in the community, and decided to ensure her legacy through a planned estate gift to her endowed fund at the Foundation. Unfortunately, Christine lost her battle with cancer early in 2017. We are honored to have been able to help Christine fulfill her charitable giving goals, and grateful to be able to carry out her legacy in support of the causes close to her heart. Each year, beginning in 2018, The Community Foundation will award an Impact Grant from the Humphreys Family Fund to a nonprofit organization working to support parks, pets and quality of life in our community.
