We invite you to add your legacy to those friends of the Clinton County Foundation who share a vision of a brighter tomorrow. Friends leave gifts to their community through the Clinton County Foundation by a bequest in a will, estate plans or trust agreement.

Joining the 1810 Circle Society can be accomplished in three easy steps:

  1. Arrange for your estate to leave a gift to the Clinton County Foundation.
  2. Inform the Clinton County Foundation of your gift.
  3. Tell us about your gift.

There is no minimum required to qualify for membership. Bequests are the most common method used to leave a gift to the Clinton County Foundation. Here is our sample bequest language to help guide your plan.

Other deferred gifts include:

  • Designating all or a portion of your retirement assets to the Foundation
  • Making the Foundation the beneficiary of an insurance policy
  • Establishing a charitable gift annuity through the Foundation and others

If you so choose, 1810 Circle Society members may remain anonymous.

“All life and achievement is evolution; present wisdom comes from past experience, and present commercial prosperity has come only from past exertion…The deeds and motives of the residents who have gone before have been instrumental in shaping the destinies of later communities…”
