Edith Sonntag Charitable Fund

More than great wealth, philanthropy requires a generosity of spirit and desire to improve the quality of life for others. That was the goal of Edith Sonntag, who designated a share of her estate to be gifted to Legacy Foundation for the causes she cared about in the community she loved. Edith passed away at age 95, and The Edith Sonntag Charitable Fund will forever carry on her legacy of giving.
