Named in memory of Daniel J. O'Neill, the O'Neill Society was created to recognize those who remember the Wayne County Community Foundation through a will, trust, life insurance or other planned gift.
Too often, gifts of this sort are unrecognized because they come at the end of the donor's life.
Involvement in the Society gives members the opportunity to enjoy the company of others who, like themselves, care about leaving a legacy to protect and strengthen Wayne County.
How can you join the O'Neill Society? Only a statement of intent to leave a gift to the Wayne County Community Foundation is required. No documentation of gift amount is necessary. Members of the O'Neill Society may designate the use of the distribution of their future gifts, or may leave the distribution to the discretion of the Foundation. A gift may be used, in appropriate circumstances, to establish a new fund or scholarship, or may be added to any of the Foundation's existing funds.
You can find the O'Neill Society form here to print at home and mail into the Foundation.
