“I feel great confidence in the strategic oversight provided by the Foundation’s board. LCF is nimble, with excellent knowledge of our community’s needs – and I have peace of mind knowing our best interests will be taken care of.”

What will your legacy be? William James said that the greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it. London Community Foundation can help you fulfil your charitable dreams in a way that’s flexible and customized to you and the causes closest to your heart.

We make it easy for you to give strategically. Our Foundation is known for its highly personalized service, in-depth community knowledge and creative giving solutions.

With a donation through your will, you can choose to create a fund in your name, with your gift invested in perpetuity – then the earnings are used to drive community change, forever. You can establish your legacy by donating cash, appreciated securities, life insurance or other assets (with tax benefits). We’d be delighted to welcome you to the Lorraine Ivey Shuttleworth Society, recognizing those with the forethought and generosity to make a legacy gift (or you can choose to remain anonymous).

You don’t need to be a millionaire to make a gift in your will. This is an incredibly meaningful gift to make – and we can walk you through it, no matter what you have to give.

We’re always happy to hear from you and provide further information. Please contact:
