Planned Giving

The Southface Cornerstone Society honors and recognizes donors who have made plans to leave a legacy for Southface by including the organization in their estate plans.

It can be a gift of cash, assets or retirement funds, of a specific amount or a remaining percentage of the estate.

If you are a current supporter of Southface, a gift from your estate will enable your enthusiasm for our mission to endure and possibly facilitate greater giving than you thought possible.

If you are interested in learning more about the Cornerstone Society and planned giving opportunities, the Southface Development team would be happy to meet with you to talk about the organization’s long-term vision and the variety of ways to support our mission and work.
