1883 Society

Your Gift. Your Legacy. Our Shared Vision.

The Foundation’s tomorrow depends on what we do today.

Charitable giving can be an important part of the legacy you choose to leave. Making a gift to the Bucks County Bar Foundation through your estate plan creates opportunities for both our donors and the Foundation. Making this kind of charitable gift also grants you membership to our newly formed 1883 Society. 

There are many ways to leave a legacy such as naming BCBF as a beneficiary of your estate plan or IRA, or establishing an income gift – like a gift annuity. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. The correct plan for you balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.
