Planned Giving

Make an impact
on the next generation

You’ve accomplished much in your life. What is your vision or hope for the future after you pass? These are some life-changing decisions to think about as you do your own philanthropic strategic planning. Most people have both world visions as well as their own community connections where
they hope to make a difference. We hope you might consider CFS in your planning.


By making a bequest in your will you can make a meaningful contribution to the next generation of Northern Michigan children and families while also reducing the tax burden on your heirs and benefactors.


We encourage our friends and neighbors to contact their financial advisor to discuss options for including a legacy gift in the form of a tax-deductible donation or by leaving a percentage of your IRA, 401(k) or other retirement plans. CFS has several options for beginning the legacy giving process.


For further information, please contact us today either by emailing Linda Sommerville at or fill out the contact form below.


Honor the life and legacy of a loved one with a contribution to northern Michigan’s children and families.

One of the biggest challenges in getting over losing a loved one is the finality of it all. Please consider honoring the memory of your loved one by making a contribution in their name that will ensure their legacy lives on by making an impact on the children and families of northern Michigan that need help.
