Join: Frameline Legacy Circle

The Frameline Legacy Circle was formed to honor the special group of donors who make a lasting commitment to the presentation of high quality LGBTQ independent media by including Frameline in their estate plan.

By joining the Legacy Circle, you are helping to ensure that poignant and thought-provoking films that document and celebrate LGBTQ lives truthfully and with respect are seen by audiences around the world.

A planned gift can generate financial benefits for a donor during his or her lifetime as well as provide future benefits to a charitable organization like Frameline. There are many ways to make a planned gift, including naming Frameline as a beneficiary in your will or living trust, charitable remainder or lead trust, life estate and/or life insurance. Sample bequest language can be downloaded by clicking here.

Frameline is pleased to offer special benefits to Legacy Circle members. These include:

  • Recognition of your name along with other Legacy Circle members in Frameline publications (unless you wish to be anonymous)
  • Invitations to special events, including an exclusive Legacy Circle gathering
  • News and announcements throughout the year

If you have included Frameline in your will, living trust, or estate plan, please let us know so that we can welcome you to the Legacy Circle.
