Ways to Leave a Legacy through Planned Giving
The Torrey Legacy is an important way to participate in SISD's future by making estate bequests. By naming the SISD Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or trust, you may choose to gift cash, real estate, personal property, life insurance, annuities or deferred annuities. You can access detailed information on gifting by clicking the attached links, where Torrey Society, Torrey Legacy and Individual Gifting forms are available.
What is the SISD Foundation?
The SISD Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit charitable organization founded as a result of the $48,000 gift from the estate of long-time member Rilla Lovell in 1994. Rilla joined the club in 1971 and was President from 1975 to 1976. She was a Captain with the U.S. Naval Reserve, and a business education specialist for San Diego City Schools. In addition to SISD, Rilla was active in the San Diego Chapter of the Freedom's Foundation at Valley Forge. The highlight of her presidency was the presentation and dedication of flags for the front of the Aerospace Museum in Balboa Park. With Rilla's generous bequest, the Soroptimist International of San Diego Foundation, Inc. was formed in 1998. The goal of The Foundation is to accrue assets sufficient to provide additional funds for Club projects.
Is membership in the SISD Foundation a part of SISD membership?
Yes. Members of SISD are automatically members of The Foundation. Contributions to the Foundation are optional, and can be made individually, or through The Torrey Society or Torrey Legacy. The Torrey Society is a Recognition program of the Foundation. It honors financial dedication to the Foundation and its mission. With a minimum donation of $1,000 SISD members can join The Society. All Torrey members are acknowledged with the specially designed Torrey pine tree pin at the left. Diamond contributors of $10,000 or more will receive a Torrey Society pin with a diamond, representing their membership status.
