Give the gift of education, conservation and wellness to our community & the Indian River Lagoon!
You have an important connection with us, and a legacy gift is the perfect way to continue that relationship. A legacy gift is...
Easy to arrange—Set up a legacy gift with ease now, and revise it without hassle in the future
A benefit to everyone—Legacy gifts provide for you, your loved ones, and the ELC
Fit for anyone—You don’t have to have a lot of wealth or a huge estate to make a legacy gift
Legacy Gifts can be made in a variety of ways including a will or estate plan, life insurance policy, or remainder of a retirement plan.
Your gift will be matched!
Because of their strong belief in education, Bill and Carol Barrows gave $500,000 to the ELC and are now offering another $1,000,000 as a matching legacy contribution to the ELC Foundation.
For more information about how to create your legacy, contact Lesley Lichko, Director of Philanthropy at or 772-589-5050 ext. 103.

Our Legacy Society recognizes donors who have chosen to support the future of the ELC through their estate. Please let us know if you plan to or have already included the ELC in your will or estate. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in our Legacy Society.
