Legacy Society Planned Giving

The members of the Lowry Foundation Legacy Society have determined to commit to a gift in the future. Contributions to the Legacy Society are directed to the Foundation’s Long-Term Permanent Endowment to generate distributions for operations in perpetuity.

Why is planned giving important to the Foundation?

  • A legacy gift contributes to our ability to meet operational needs for years to come.
  • Legacy gifts contribute to the wellbeing of the organization and serve as inspiration to others to do the same.
  • Legacy gifts provide donors a meaningful way to preserve the culture of philanthropy for the organization and the community.
  • The Legacy Society contributes to the issues and values that members cherish will be remembered.
