Do you consider yourself a philanthropist? If you tallied the total charitable gifts you will make in your lifetime, you might think of yourself differently. Philanthropists leave legacies.
What if you could leave a legacy by making a larger gift than you ever thought possible in your lifetime, while still securing your assets for loved ones in the future? Members of the Horizon Society have done just that—they are the philanthropists who have left a legacy to Sigma Kappa by:
