Chesapeake Legacy Circle

The Chesapeake Legacy Circle is a group of Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) supporters who, in addition to any annual support, have made a lasting commitment to the Bay through a life-income gift with CBF or by naming us as a beneficiary in their estate plans. The Chesapeake Legacy Circle was established to thank and recognize these generous individuals for their profound contribution to the Bay's future.

We thank all past and present members of the Chesapeake Legacy Circle for their dedication to restoring, preserving, and protecting the Bay and its rivers and streams. One person - you - really can have a lasting impact, helping ensure clean water and a healthy Bay for current and future generations.

Have you already included CBF in your estate plans? Please let us know. Your Chesapeake Legacy Circle membership allows us to recognize your commitment and may inspire generosity in others, encouraging them to follow the example of your leadership. Of course, we also respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but we urge you to let us know of your plans on a confidential basis.
