What Will Your Legacy Be?

Bradley Impact Legacy SocietyProtecting donor intent is at the core of the Bradley Impact Fund’s mission. The Bradley Impact Legacy Society—which will ensure members’ philanthropic legacy is stewarded as they intend—is the next step toward fulfilling this mission.

Legacy Society members enlist the support of Bradley Impact Fund staff to help steward and safeguard their giving after their passing. The Impact Fund’s vigilance helps give Legacy Society members assurance that their giving will only support those ideas, policies, and organizations that align with their intent and our common principles during their lifetimes and beyond.

Using a donor-advised fund such as the Bradley Impact Fund as part of your estate planning strategy can be a flexible, convenient, and cost-effective option for many donors that offers advantages over traditional bequests.
