Legacy Giving

Create A Legacy

The Thomas Jefferson Circle

The Thomas Jefferson Circle was established to recognize donors who have expressed commitment to The Corporation for Jefferson’s Poplar Forest by including Poplar Forest in their estate plans. Legacy gifts sustain our mission and provide future financial support to Poplar Forest.


Have you already included a gift in your will or trust? We would love to thank you for your generosity.


Let Us Know

Begin your legacy with us

To help you get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating your will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own, or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.

Non-probate assets

Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.


Designate Poplar Forest



Please contact Renee Rose Flowers, Director of Development at 434-534-8129 or to discuss how your gift can help further the mission of Poplar Forest.
