The Legacy Society
Legacy giving refers to donations that supporters plan to give to our nonprofit after their passing. Legacy giving is also commonly referred to as ‘planned giving’ as donors often plan these gifts years before they are distributed to the designated parties. In addition to your regular annual giving, legacy gifts in your estate plan can ensure your impact carries forward far into the future. Please let us know if you have included Ilan-Lael in your estate plan so we can recognize you in our Legacy Society! If you are interested in learning more about how you can support the Ilan-Lael Endowment Founders’ Circle or Legacy Society, please email Marianne Gerdes at Or give us a call at 760-765-3427.
