Footprint Fellowes (Legacy)

"The mass of men worry themselves into nameless graves while here and there a great unselfish soul forgets himself into immortality."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson -



The Footprint Fellows Touch the Future

The Legacy Society (Footprint Fellows) recognizes and honors those individuals who have made a place for the Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation in their estate plans through a bequest, charitable remainder trust, gift of life insurance or other type of charitable planned gifts.

Our community foundation's endowment - its "savings account" for future generations of coastal Georgians that will always be there to address critical issues and needs as they arise - is ultimately built on the dreams and desires of coastal Georgians as stated in their wills and estate plans.

Working with you, your attorney or tax advisor, we can suggest bequests, trust instruments, gifts of life insurance, IRA distributions, and other ways to provide a legacy of charity while realizing substantial tax savings.
