A Lasting Legacy
When you become a Cornerstone Society member, you are taking a huge step to ensure that Frederick County continues to be a place that future generations will be proud to call home. Your legacy can be defined through grants, scholarships, or both, benefiting the causes that are most important to you.
For those who plan to leave a legacy of giving after they are gone by entrusting us with a planned gift, the Cornerstone Society is our way of saying thank you. Annually, all Cornerstone members are invited to a luncheon and are recognized for their generosity. In addition, Cornerstone member names are listed on our website and in the printed annual report. And, should a Cornerstone member wish to remain anonymous, that request is respectfully honored.
