LEAVE A LEGACY®
Welcome to the LEAVE A LEGACY® site of the Silicon Valley Planned Giving Council. LEAVE A LEGACY is a public awareness campaign of the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning (PPP) in conjunction with planned giving councils across the United States and Canada. The LEAVE A LEGACY message and materials that you will find on the following pages were created by PPP to educate you about the benefit of leaving a bequest to your favorite public benefit organization in your will and estate plan.
About LEAVE A LEGACY®
LEAVE A LEGACY® is the national public awareness campaign conducted by the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning to inspire people to make charitable bequests. LEAVE A LEGACY is a broad-based community campaign that involves all types of nonprofit groups, including social service and arts organizations, churches, hospitals and educational institutions. The program is conducted by professionals who assist donors with charitable estate planning. These partners help promote the message that people from all walks of life – covering a wide range of ages and income levels – have the ability to “make a difference in the lives that follow” by leaving a charitable legacy.
Since LEAVE A LEGACY was established by PPP in 1996, a strong army of dedicated and skilled volunteers, under PPP’s guidance, has launched community programs in 165 communities in the United States, and 24 in Canada, to help raise awareness about bequest giving in every way possible. Along the way, thousands of people have written wills, and learned what steps to take to leave a bequest to charity.
LEAVE A LEGACY Silicon Valley is sponsored by the Silicon Valley Planned Giving Council, a group of professionals who are experts in all types of charitable gifts.
