Create a Legacy

After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, think about leaving the Foundation a gift in your will.

Your Charitable Bequest Will Keep Filling Unmet Eden Prairie Needs

Consider leaving the Foundation a gift from your will or trust.

There is no greater commitment to Eden Prairie than to ensure its care after you’re gone. Whatever legacy you created during your lifetime can continue, often in your name, in perpetuity with a bequest to the Eden Prairie Community Foundation.

Bequests provide tremendous tax benefits because they are wholly deductible from an individual’s estate. Bequest intentions may be included at the time a new will is drawn, or added to an existing will through a simple codicil. The Foundation can provide simple language to share with your financial planner.

Please note that the Foundation does not offer legal, tax, or financial planning advice. You are encouraged to consult your own legal counsel, tax advisor, and/or financial planner.

We ask anyone who has made a bequest intention to the Eden Prairie Community Foundation to let us know.

To learn more about bequests, please contact Foundation Executive Director Mark Weber at (952) 949-8499 or [email protected].
