    “Realizing the Vision” over time through regular giving

    Many people would like to support The Resource Center’s mission with a substantial gift, but they worry about relinquishing the income those assets generate. A Charitable Gift Annuity enables you to make a generous gift to The Resource Center (via the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation) while providing you and/or another chosen individual with a high, fixed, guaranteed income for life. For information about Charitable Gift Annuities and other forms of Planned Giving, contact Steve Waterson, Director of Community Relations, Marketing and Development, at 716-483-2344, extension 90135, or steve.waterson@resourcecenter.org.

    Consistent periodic or annual giving provides a contribution that, over time, grows into a significant legacy that will support people with disabilities for years to come. We established The Legacy Circle to recognize individuals and entities who have achieved significant levels of giving to The Resource Center and Filling the Gap, Inc. The members of The Legacy Circle are listed below, based on cumulative contributions received through December 31, 2023.
