Creating Your Charitable Legacy

Create the Legacy You Want for the Community You Love

Many people choose to include charity on their will or name charity as a retirement plan beneficiary,

Why?

  • To give back to their community.
  • To keep up the donations they made during their lifetime, so the organizations they care most about can continue to count on them.
  • To continue a family tradition of giving.

The Adams County Community Foundation can help.

The Adams County Community Foundation is Adams County’s charitable foundation. We are a nonprofit organization, not a government agency, created by the people of Adams County for Adams County. The Adams County Community Foundation is here to help people just like you discover the power of giving back.

The Adams County Community Foundation has experience. Our staff has been helping generous people make the most of their giving for generations. We are here to help you and your personal representative ensure your legacy has the maximum impact and that your wishes are put into action.
