John Hancock
Legacy Society

The John Hancock Legacy Society recognizes and celebrates individuals who have generously included the Community Foundation of Hancock County in their estate plans. By making a planned gift provision to benefit the foundation, you will be continuing to support CFHC even after your lifetime.


Membership in the John Hancock Legacy Society is open to everyone who makes a planned gift provision to CFHC, which can be done in various ways, such as:

  • Making a bequest to the Community Foundation of Hancock County in your will or revocable trust
  • Making the Community Foundation a beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement plan
  • Making a life income gift agreement such as a charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, pooled income fund or charitable gift annuity
  • Making the Community Foundation the owner of a paid-up life insurance policy or the beneficiary of a life insurance policy

There is a $3,000 gift requirement for membership in the John Hancock Legacy Society, and the anticipation that the value of the planned gift will meet CFHC’s named fund minimum requirements upon gift maturity. Many estate provisions are expressed as a percentage or remainder of your estate and thus may vary over time.

The Legacy Society recognizes all gifts that, in effect, continue a donor’s support of the Community Foundation of Hancock County after his or her lifetime.
