Give Later


Your legacy

Giving throughout our lifetime is only one form of philanthropy. Since 1981, we have worked hand-in-hand with individuals and families to create charitable legacies that provide lasting support for causes in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. We invite you to use planned gifts to create a new fund or to support an existing fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation through the Piñon Legacy Society.

PIÑon Legacy society

Recognizing tomorrow's gift today

The Piñon Legacy Society honors those whose generosity and careful planning will benefit the next generation. Members have learned that by establishing a planned gift, they receive the satisfaction of participating in philanthropy during their lifetimes. We encourage you to let us know when you arrange for a planned gift that benefits the Santa Fe Community Foundation.
