About Us

The mission of LEAVE A LEGACY® Stark County is to educate and inspire people from all walks of life to make gifts to their favorite charities through their wills or estate plan. To accomplish this mission, Leave a Legacy Stark County not only seeks to educate the charitably-minded public, but those professionals in the legal and nonprofit fields who engage those who are inclined to make a charitable gift.

Leave a Legacy Stark County meets bi-monthly and three of those meetings are focused on an educational presentation by a professional in the legal, financial planning or nonprofit planned giving field. These meetings allow members to keep abreast of current topics and trends in planned giving as well as provide a time to network and share marketing ideas. To see the meeting schedule, click here.

In addition to our bi-monthly meetings, Leave a Legacy Stark County partners with Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton to provide the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy’s Certificate in Fundraising Management (CFRM) curriculum. Our partnership with the Sisters of Charity allows Leave a Legacy Stark County to bring this prestigious training to our members for a small fraction of the tuition cost of the university. This is a benefit that makes Leave a Legacy membership an unparalleled value to our local nonprofits.
