Creating Community

Jerome Cubbage’s love for his hometown led to a lasting legacy. Jerome’s passion for the community and charitable causes prompted him to establish a charitable gift annuity with the Community Foundation. It was a good fit as it allowed him the flexibility to support a variety of causes while providing a fixed income during his lifetime. 

“It was very important to Jerome that his charitable giving was carried out as he intended. Utilizing a charitable gift annuity gave him financial security and provided us with clear direction on how to realize his charitable wishes,” says his son Alan.  From establishing a scholarship in honor of his late wife at their alma mater to investing in the future needs of his hometown through the Community Foundation’s Better Together Fund, Jerome’s generosity will continue to impact lives for generations.
