The Max & Clara Legacy Society
The Max & Clara Legacy Society is named in honor of Major Max C.
Fleischmann and Clara Hinton Gould who gave generously to establish the
Santa Barbara Foundation, influenced other benefactors to join with them,
and ultimately left planned gifts as their legacy to our community. By
leaving the Santa Barbara Foundation in your estate plans, you will be
recognized as a member and receive invitations to our annual celebration
Do you want to ensure that your charitable intentions are met long after
your lifetime? Including a charitable bequest in your will is a simple way
to make a lasting gift to your community. When you make this type of gift
through the foundation, we can establish a fund managed by your heirs or
overseen by the foundation. Your gift can be endowed so that it benefits
the community forever and becomes your personal legacy of giving. More
A charitable gift annuity is a great way you can make a gift to our organization and benefit. You transfer your cash or property to our organization and we promise to make fixed payments to you for life at a rate based on your age.
