Legacy of Equality Society


Our Legacy of Equality Society members are a group of generous and forward-thinking Equality Florida supporters who have made a long-range commitment to the success of our mission to bring full equality and justice to Florida’s LGBTQ+ community. Their gifts will benefit the next generations of LGBTQ+ people, whose equality battles are yet to be known. We have brought about great progress in the past and staved off fierce challenges to that progress, and the future is expected to be no different. Thanks to our Legacy of Equality Society members, Equality Florida will have the resources necessary to overcome the hurdles that lay ahead to uproot bigotry. We will make Florida a safe and affirming place for all, no matter a person’s sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.

In recognition of their commitment, our Legacy of Equality Society members receive:  

  • Permanent recognition in all Legacy of Equality Society materials
  • Tickets to Legacy of Equality Society luncheons or receptions in many areas
  • Beautiful Legacy of Equality Society pin

Estate planning is a smart move for everyone, regardless of age or income. For LGBTQ+ individuals and couples, and those who care about them, it can be especially important to ensure that chosen loved ones and carefully selected charitable organizations benefit from their estates.

Now, Equality Florida has a partnership with FreeWill, a cost-free, streamlined, and intuitive online platform that takes the guesswork out of creating or updating a will, and ensures a meaningful legacy by connecting users with their favorite non-profits. In just 20 minutes, from the comfort of their homes, Equality Florida supporters can now ensure that LGBTQ+ rights will be protected for years to come. Go to freewill.com/equalityflorida for details and to start your will. Once you have completed your will at FreeWill.com, get in touch with us about joining the Legacy of Equality Society.
