Give a Legacy

Audience of people clapping

Jeff and Melinda Underwood are Charter members of the Boundless Legacy Society, the Planned Giving Society that honors legacy gifts (estate bequests, life insurance, etc.) that will support Lakeshore Foundation for years to come.

In honor of the Underwood family’s commitment to the Lakeshore Foundation mission, the Planned Giving Society is now the Jeff and Melinda Underwood Legacy Society

We invite you to consider joining the Underwood family by making a legacy gift to assure that Lakeshore Foundation can benefit people with disabilities into the future.

Your estate planning can support Lakeshore Foundation’s mission with:

  • A will or testamentary gift
  • A charitable gift annuity, charitable trust or other split-interest gift
  • A certificate of deposit, life estate or other personal property
  • A gift of life insurance, IRA designation or real estate deed
  • An assignment of a royalty, patent, timber, mineral rights, lease or note.

Please fill out this form as a Letter of Intent. It is preferable that the amount of the gift is disclosed to Lakeshore Foundation, but it is not mandatory. Gifts may be given anonymously.

For more information please contact Leon Ryan, Director of Development, at  or 205-612-3314. All inquiries are confidential.
