About Us

LEAVE A LEGACY® is a public awareness campaign of the National Committee on Planned Giving. LEAVE A LEGACY® programs across the country are educating the public about the benefits of leaving bequests to charity in wills and estate plans.

Our local program is organized in conjunction with the Western New York Planned Giving Consortium, Inc.

Mission Statement

LEAVE A LEGACY® WESTERN NEW YORK is a collaborative effort among non-profit organizations, estate and financial planning professionals, and the media to promote gifts to charities through wills and estate plans. The program encourages people of all ages and backgrounds to make gifts to the non-profit organizations of their choice.

The Western New York program is made up of community based organizations including human service agencies, churches, educational institutions, hospitals, arts organizations, and professional advisors such as attorneys, accountants, financial planners, insurance agents and many more.

The initiative originated in Columbus, Ohio in 1994 and is uniting more than 100 communities throughout the U.S. and Canada to promote awareness of the importance of remembering special causes.

Please note that LEAVE A LEGACY® does not solicit gifts for a particular organization, this is a collaborative effort among LEAVE A LEGACY® WESTERN NEW YORK Partners.
