Nic and Patty Kortland, members of the Legacy Society, decided it was important to them for children to be given the gift of an agricultural education for generations to come. 

Planned Giving- Leaving Your Legacy

How would you like your contributions to your family, your community, your agriculture career, to be remembered? In other words, what do you want to leave as your legacy? 


It is never easy to think about saying good-bye to loved ones, but it is easy to create a legacy that reflects your priorities, values, contributions, and passions.


You can make decisions today that will provide your family financial security, support your favorite organizations like Agriculture in the Classroom, honor your family’s heritage, and determine your agricultural legacy. 


AITC's Legacy Society consists of individuals who have passed, but have decided that their agricultural legacy should live on and benefit Virginia's children for generations to come.


Through a variety of Legacy Management tools and your situation you may be able to:

  • Provide long term financial security for loved ones.
