The Alma Lee Loy Legacy Society was established in 2011 to honor donors who entrust Indian River Community Foundation with their charitable legacy. These are special people whose estate gifts will provide significant benefit to the local charitable causes they love through permanent endowments. Since its establishment, a growing number of individuals and families have been inspired by Alma Lee Loy’s spirit of generosity to notify the Community Foundation of planned gifts and be recognized in the Legacy Society. A complete list of Alma Lee Loy Legacy Society members can be found here.
In addition to being one of 52 Founders who provided start-up capital to the Community Foundation, to serving on the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors and to lending her name to the Legacy Society, Alma Lee established the Alma Lee Loy Fund as a donor advised fund. The Community Foundation will continue to carefully steward these resources to support local charities in her memory.
