The Legacy Society of the Diocese of Georgia was formed in 2005 to provide on-going education and support to parishes and congregations regarding planned giving activity. Its members are people in the Diocese who, as good stewards, have made a planned gift to their parish, to the Diocese, or to an Episcopal organization within the Diocese. By making a planned gift to one of these three entities, and making it known, one is automatically a member of The Legacy Society of the Diocese of Georgia.
The Legacy Society encourages every member of the Diocese to consider how one’s spiritual wealth is intertwined with financial wealth, and to look beyond one’s current financial patterns to include his or her parish, an Episcopal organization within the Diocese, or the Diocese itself, in the estate planning process. Gifts can take many forms and can be made for any amount- no gift is too small!
If you have already made a planned gift to your parish, we hope you will let it be known by completing the enrolmment form and submitting it first to the entity to which you made your planned gift, and then to the Diocesan office. If you have not yet made a planned gift, we hope you will – your committment will ensure that our congregations will have the resources to build up the Body of Christ for decades to come!
Should you have questions about making a planned gift to your congregation, the Diocese, or an organization within the Diocese, or about how your congregation can start its own planned giving program, please contact the Diocesan office on 912.236.4279 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
