2017 Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy is a public awareness campaign designed to inspire people from all walks of life and income levels to think beyond their lifespan when doing good works.

To make a difference in the lives that follow, find a charity to support through your will or estate. If you want to learn more about local charities, contact Angie Tatro, Executive Director of Central Kansas Community Foundation at angie@centralkansascf.org or 316.283.5474.

We Americans are a generous people. More than 70 percent of us make charitable contributions during our lifetimes. Yet only six percent will provide ongoing support through wills or estate plans. Leave a Legacy wants to change that.

The Luncheon was a great success – we invite those who attended and those unable to reach out to CKCF or any of the other participating organizations, your CPA or your attorney for more information about how to start working on your Legacy!

Encouraging Legacies…

Newton area Leave a Legacy is part of a licensed national program created by the National Council on Planned Giving and sponsored by Central Kansas Planned Giving Roundtable. The program promotes philanthropy through wills and estate plans. The Newton community was the first in Kansas to offer a Leave a Legacy program.

Through our public education program that encourages planned giving, we seek to bring together communities, donors and estate planning professionals. Not sure where or how to start exploring your estate planning. Contact CKCF to learn more about a free consultation for estate planning. Click Here to learn how to start your process.

Continuing your financial support through estate planning is critical if your favorite charities are to flourish and grow. For years to come.


Our annual month-long public education campaign offers a variety of activities to encourage planned giving and to raise awareness of the various planning strategies available to you.

At the heart of the campaign is our Speakers Bureau – professionals who make presentations to local organizations on estate planning. Our speakers include attorneys, financial planners, accountants, estate planners and others with expertise in this area.

Any group may request a speaker.

Paving the way…

Leave a Legacy is not seeking support for any particular group, or for organizations in a specific area. We only want you to realize the potential that lies within each of us to make a startling difference in the lives of others.
