In general, anyone may become a Legacy Society member, regardless of amount committed.
Spouses of donors are automatically included as Legacy Society members.
If neither the Church or the Foundation is specifically designated as the recipient of an unrestricted bequest, current policy is that the first $100,000 accumulated in any given fiscal year goes to the Church operating budget and all monies above that go to a general endowment managed by the Foundation. Will Church of the Palms or the Foundation provide or recommend an attorney to help members with their planning?
The Church cannot provide tax or legal advice and highly recommends that you seek the advice of your own professional counsel. Neither can we recommend an attorney, but we may be able to suggest how you go about it.
