The Future Is Unknown

We know that we can’t predict our community’s future needs, a reality painfully underscored by the devastating and sudden impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. But we do know that EBCF will continue to partner with donors, social movements, and the community to eliminate structural barriers, advance racial equity, and transform political, social, and economic outcomes for all who call the East Bay home.

By making a bequest through your will or trust, you can help meet our community’s needs that we can’t even begin to imagine today. Legacy gifts, or gifts through estate plans, can support our community for generations to come.

Join the Circle for Change

Become part of the East Bay Community Foundation Circle For Change by including EBCF in your philanthropic legacy.

We appreciate the leadership of our legacy donors — philanthropists with long-term vision for community support and change. Whether your gift continues the philanthropic work you are most committed to or is a gift solely to the East Bay Community Foundation, you can rest assured knowing the good work will continue.

Circle for Change members enjoy the company of others who care about leaving a legacy to protect and strengthen the community. Each year, EBCF holds a luncheon where members are in community with each other and learn how EBCF is helping build a community that is worthy of the people who call this amazing place home. Circle for Change members are invited to all events hosted by EBCF throughout the year.

Your legacy giving plan — whatever it is — will be among your lasting legacies, just as it is for all of us. Your legacy gifts, combined with those of thousands of others, can transform our community’s future. We hope you’ll join us.
