Donors join the Legacy Circle for a number of reasons. Some join to perpetuate a lifelong passion, to inspire philanthropy, to fuel the dreams of generations to come, to involve their families in charitable giving, or to thank a community that has enriched their lives.
Legacy Circle members have made a conscious decision to build today into a better tomorrow, and deserve to be recognized and honoured for their foresight and planning.
