Lifetime & Legacy Giving

With more than two decades of experience in philanthropy, we help generous individuals, families and groups create positive change through their giving.

“I am inspired by the words of the Talmud: ‘Every man should plant a tree, have a child and write a book. These all live on after us.’ I want to leave the world a better place than I found it, and the legacy gift is my version of planting a tree. It’s something that will help people even when I’m gone.”

Rose Community Legacy Circle

The Rose Community Legacy Circle honors those who have generously provided gifts to and through Rose Community Foundation in their estate plans. Legacy Circle membership includes invitations to exclusive programs and Foundation events, connection and stewardship opportunities, and recognition of your philanthropic leadership. For more information, contact Judy Altenberg. 

Living Legacy Tapestry

The Living Legacy Tapestry honors the first 100 legacy donors to Rose Community Foundation with personal memories, images and other artifacts. Created by artists Leah Sobsey and Lynn Bregman Blass, the Tapestry is a visual representation of the legacies of our donors. On permanent display in our lobby, it inspires everyone who walks through our doors to reflect on the power of a community of donors living purposeful and generous lives.
