Gemeinschaft Legacy Circle


Gemeinschaft is a German word that describes a group or society characterized by a strong sense of common identity, close personal relationships, and an attachment to traditions.  This strong sense of attachment is shared among the members, staff, and organization at the German American Heritage Center.
The Gemeinschaft Legacy Circle recognizes and honors those who have included the German American Heritage Center in their estate plans with a future gift through a bequest, life insurance, or trust arrangement; or have made an outright gift to our Endowment Fund.

By pledging your gifts to the help the fulfillment of the German American Heritage Center’s mission, you will become a member of this exclusive group as friends and constituents of the center. To honor your commitment, the German American Heritage Center would like to host exclusive gatherings to thank you for your support. The Gemeinschaft Legacy Circle is a newly established group and is seeking to add more to its ranks.

Life members to the center are automatically qualified to join the Gemeinschaft Legacy Circle. For more information on how you can leave your legacy, please contact the German American Heritage Center at 563.322.8844 or
