Heritage Society

The purpose of the Heritage Society is to identify and thank those who have expressed their intent to provide a gift in the future by naming the Battle Creek Community Foundation as beneficiary through their estate planning or other means, and to those who have made a current gift(s) totaling $10,000 or more. To honor these individuals and recognize their generosity, the Community Foundation established the “Heritage Society.” The many examples of giving through Heritage Society members may help others find a way to fulfill their dreams, or the legacy of a lost loved one, through opportunities available within the Community Foundation.

To encourage individuals to complete their estate planning, we created the Seeds of Growth incentive program. When a donor includes the Community Foundation in their will/estate planning, they are allowed to give an immediate grant of $1,000 to a charity of their choice. If you have, or are planning to name the Community Foundation as a beneficiary in your estate planning, you may complete the Seeds of Growth Intent Form and return to us. (How to Include Us in Your Will) We will contact you to put the details in place and provide your grant opportunity. For more information on this program, call our development department at (269) 962-2181.

The Battle Creek Community Foundation honors and recognizes the following individuals for their generosity to our community through the Heritage Society program.
