Planned Giving

Make a Planned Gift

Make a difference with a planned gift. Join a group of forward-thinking philanthropists by becoming a member of the Legacy Society.

Using the Right Words

To leave a gift to the Juneau Community Foundation in your will or living trust, or to designate us as a beneficiary of an IRA or other financial account simply provide your advisor or financial account administrator with the following information:

“I hereby give (percentage, residuary, share, or specified amount or asset) to the Juneau Community Foundation, 350 N. Franklin Street, Suite 4,m Juneau, Alaska 99801. Juneau Community Foundation Tax ID: 52-2395867”

If you have more life insurance than you need, naming the Juneau Community Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of your paid-up policy is a generous gift that’s easy to give and can make a lasting impact. To gift your life insurance, simply contact your insurer and request a Change of Beneficiary/Ownership Form. Then, designate the Juneau Community Foundation as the new owner and beneficiary.

Juneau is a great place to live and work. One of the wonderful things about living in Juneau is its sense of community.  People raise their families, earn their livelihood, and take care of each other here. As a community and as individuals, we are committed to improving Juneau’s quality of life far into the future.  That’s why the Juneau Community Foundation was established.  We are dedicated to engaging people in the future of Juneau, building philanthropy, and expanding opportunities to work tougher to support Juneau.


Taking the long view

The Foundation’s main goal is to increase philanthropy in Juneau.  We make it easy for you to give. We help you make a lasting difference for the causes you care about. Your planned gift will directly impact the lives of future generations by continuing to fuel grants.

Leaving a gift in your will or trust or through your retirement account is easy to do.
