Legacy Giving

You can give a gift today that will make a difference in Ketchikan for generations to come.  Join the Legacy Society for Alaska and become a part of a community of like-minded individuals who have included The Alaska Community Foundation and the Ketchikan Community Foundation (KCF) in their estate plans through bequests, outright gifts, or life insurance and retirement-plan beneficiary designations. To find out more on how to join the Legacy Society for Alaska, please visit the ACF Legacy page.

There are many kinds of legacy gifts. KCF has a legacy committee to help you answer your questions and guide you toward making a legacy gift that you feel comfortable with. To have a legacy committee member contact you, email Heidi at hweston@alaskacf.org.

For a confidential, no-obligation consultation on leaving a legacy to your community through the Ketchikan Community Foundation, please contact The Alaska Community Foundation at 907-334-6700.
