Leave a Legacy Iowa Logo

Every day individuals in Iowa and our border communities benefit from the impact of nonprofit charitable organizations who contribute to the quality of our lives through their programs, facilities and services.

In an all out collaborative effort to preserve the quality of our lives for future generations, groups of individuals, professionals, and charitable nonprofit organizations have banded together to create the LEAVE A LEGACY™ network — a national public education and awareness campaign sponsored by what was formally known as the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning now known as the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners. (NACGP)

As an extension of the national effort, LEAVE A LEGACY™ Iowa was formed and is sponsored through the Iowa Planned Giving Councils —

The goal of LEAVE A LEGACY ® in Iowa is to increase charitable legacy giving with the aim to preserve and improve the quality of life locally and throughout the state of Iowa.

This is carried out through an ongoing coordinated effort to encourage, inspire and mobilize people of all ages and backgrounds to make provision in their estate plans that include their favorite charitable organizations and to help connect people with professional advisors who can assist them in fulfilling their legacy objectives.

To learn more, please contact Leave a Legacy Iowa or visit their website.

Included in this site is a comprehensive guide for estate giving filled with education and resource material and a network to connect you with partners from the nonprofit and professional advisor fields.

Through our combined efforts, we are sure to make a difference in the lives that follow.
