Rose Community Legacy Circle

Rose Community Legacy Circle is a group of individuals who have chosen to leave a bequest or other type of planned gift to Rose Community Foundation. While they have different reasons for including a charitable gift in their future planning, they all share a common appreciation for our leadership in grantmaking and expertise in fund management and philanthropic services.

Many bequest donors choose to make an unrestricted gift for the Foundation to direct towards the community’s most pressing needs in the future. Most of these individuals are relying on our oversight and due diligence to help them achieve their charitable goals even after their lifetime. For example, some donors establish or add to a donor-advised fund to perpetuate their family’s tradition of philanthropy. Others designate a specific area of community need or interest or nonprofit organization(s) as the beneficiary of a fund held at the Foundation. A few have chosen to create an endowment fund for one or more specific nonprofit organizations.

Living Legacy Tapestry

Irit Waldbaum and her granddaugther view the Living Legacy TapestryTo recognize and honor our legacy donors, we created the Living Legacy Tapestry, an artistic archive of the donors’ values and experiences that have informed their philanthropy and dedication to community.

On display in our lobby, the Tapestry is made up of images of photographs, documents and items of personal significance provided by the legacy donors. Intended to represent the first 100 legacy donors to the Foundation, the Tapestry will evolve and grow as Rose Community Legacy Circle welcomes new donors.

The artists of the Living Legacy Tapestry are Leah Sobsey and Lynn Bregman Blass of
