DACOR Legacy Society

Join the DACOR Legacy Society

This is one of the routes to giving a gift that truly make a difference, that ensures a level of support that magnifies DACORs ability to fulfill our mission and multiplies your personal satisfaction and recognition. A gift of "tremendous significance" often can be made simply and at a very low cost.  

How to Leave a Legacy

Three methods of planned giving that are quick, easy and effective are:

  • Make a Bequest: name the DACOR Bacon House Foundation in your will

  • Add a Beneficiary to Your Life Insurance: name the DACOR Bacon House Foundation as a partial or primary beneficiary of your policy

  • Add a Beneficiary to your Retirement Plan: name the DACOR as a partial or primary beneficiary of your IRA or other retirement plan.

Benefits of Becoming a Member of the Legacy Society

Once you commit to one of these methods of giving and communicate it to DACOR, you will be a member of the DACOR Legacy Society. You do not need to disclose the amount you will give, but this does help us with our long-term planning. In return, you will receive:

  • A commemorative gift recognizing the members generous support of DACOR Bacon House Foundation

  • Inclusion on a DACOR Legacy Society plaque displayed in the House

  • An invitation to an annual event for DACOR Legacy Society members only

  • Special recognition in the Bulletin and

  • Special recognition on our website

If youve already included DACOR Bacon House Foundation in your estate planning, please let us know.
