Leave A Legacy is a national effort to inspire people from all walks of life and income levels to think beyond their lifespan when doing good works. Imagine how much good could be done if each one of us remembered a favorite charity or cause in our will or estate plan? The impact would be immeasurable!

Check back here in May, 2015 for Leave Your Legacy Month-- Every other year, Leave a Legacy Greater Williamsburg reprises its popular Write a Will Month. Area attorneys donate their time to write wills for free for anyone who leaves $5,000 or more to a Williamsburg area charity or religious organization. Next year's campaign is scheduled for May.

Locally, the Williamsburg Community Foundation administers Leave A Legacy Greater Williamsburg as a partnership between area nonprofits organizations and the professional advisor community.

Leave A Legacy encourages local citizens to support area needs through their estate plan.

There are a few simple steps to supporting your community forever.

  • Select your favorite charity or charities.
  • Contact your attorney or the administrator of your life insurance, 401(k) or IRA.
  • Add the nonprofit organization as a beneficiary.
  • Let the charity know so that you can be recognized during your lifetime.
