CREATE YOUR LEGACY IN BARNESVILLE
The Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation is dedicated to building endowments— permanent charitable resources—for Barnesville. A gift through your will can be part of your legacy and an investment in Barnesville’s future.
Gifts Through a Will
Through your will, you ensure that your loved ones will be cared for when you are gone. Did you know that you can also provide for your community when you are gone? Where there is a will, there is a way. When you meet with your attorney to create or update your will, consider adding a gift for your community by designating a percentage of your estate to the Building a Better Barnesville-Lamar Fund of the Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation.
Donors can specify a gift in their Will or revocable trust. All assets are retained during life and the donor’s estate may receive a tax deduction for the bequest. The gift is made upon death to an existing fund or to create a new fund at the Community Foundation.Learn More About Charitable Bequests
