Society of 1924

The Legacy Society of the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln

The Society of 1924 recognizes individuals and families who have indicated to the Community Foundation that they have made provisions in their estate plans to bequeath assets to the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln. Members of the Society of 1924 may choose to make bequests through their will, trust, beneficiary designations or other methods.

The origins of the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln date back to 1924, when it was known as the Sangamon County Foundation. After lying relatively dormant for nearly 80 years, the Foundation was reborn in 2002 as a full-functioning community foundation. Those local citizens who originally founded the Community Foundation in the early part of the 20th century left a great legacy to their community. It is in honor of their vision that the Foundation’s legacy society is named the Society of 1924.
