Legacy Leaders

What is a Legacy Leader?

In 2000, the JLPA•MP Endowment Fund Board established the Legacy Circle – a group of individuals and families who have made a planned gift to the Endowment Fund – with 17 charter Legacy Leaders.

In 2018, we celebrated the Endowment Fund’s 25th anniversary with a challenge grant that matched $500 for each new Legacy Leader. The list of Legacy Leaders grew to 52.

Join those who continue to lead by example. Become a Legacy Leader today!

Making a bequest to support the League’s Endowment Fund memorializes your philanthropic values and supports the League’s community programming. The League welcomes bequests of all sizes, whether they are outright, contingent or residuary.

Easy to arrange, simple to modify and adaptable to your needs, it’s easy to understand why bequests are the most popular planned gift.
