Lynda and Phillip Savage III, have arranged for a legacy gift. Here, in Phil's own words, are why they chose The Community Foundation to help create their legacy.


Legacy Society

Charles BrouseCharles L. BrouseThe Community Foundation established the Brouse Legacy Society to recognize individuals and couples who have made provisions in their estate plans to provide a gift to The Community Foundation for the benefit of their community.

These gifts take the form of bequests by naming The Community Foundation not only in a will or trust, but also in a charitable remainder trust, gifts of life insurance, or any other type of charitable planned gift.

The Brouse Legacy Society was named after Charles L. Brouse, who in 1941, together with his wife Clara, established a scholarship fund benefitting students in Riverside. This "seed" of philanthropy eventually grew into The Community Foundation and has now grown into an organization that serves both Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

Who Should Join the Brouse Legacy Society?
For people who want to create a legacy beyond their lifetime, the Brouse Legacy Society ensures donors that their charitable dollars are used in the way they intended.  If you have made arrangements in your will, trust, or other deferred gift mechanism to make a gift to The Community Foundation, you are already eligible to be a member of the Brouse Legacy Society.

What are the benefits of joining the Brouse Legacy Society?
Being a member of the Brouse Legacy Society gives you the opportunity to belong to a select group of like-minded people who are committed to support the needs of our communities.

Other benefits include:
  • Recognition annually at a special event honoring you for your gift during your lifetime.
  • The guidance of our professional staff to help you with your estate and gift planning.
  • A personalized giving plan, as detailed or general as you'd like, to ensure your philanthropy will be meaningful to you.
