Create Your Legacy for Parke County
Most of us, given the chance, would like to leave a lasting legacy to show that our life, or the life of someone we love or admire, has made a difference in society; that in some way, a contribution to an important work or cause will benefit the lives of others for generations to come. Donors have established more than 100 Legacy Funds with the Foundation since 2001, the earnings from which funds grant to Parke County charities each year forever.
Unrestricted gift of $500 or more honoring or memorializing a significant individual, organization, or business. Gifts in any amount can be added at anytime.
Unrestricted gift of $10,000 or more, or when gifts to a Legacy Hallmark Fund reach $10,000, a Legacy Heritage Fund is created. It is a "stand alone" unrestricted endowment fund from which a portion of annual earnings are granted in the name of the Heritage Fund each year. Subsequent gifts can be made to the fund in any amount at any time.
Unrestricted gift of $100,000 or more, or when a Legacy Heritage Fund reaches $100,000, a Legacy Heirloom Fund will be created. The earnings from this fund provide funding annually for a community project.
