Legacy Society

4/14/2015
Celebrating Philanthropists

 
(Davie, April 09, 2015) ─ The Community Foundation of Broward celebrated its annual Legacy Society Luncheon at Young At Art Museum with spectacular demonstrations by its youngest Fundholders.   The luncheon honors forward-thinking philanthropists who have left an estate gift to the Community Foundation.

“Every Legacy Society member has personal values that are unique and special.  We are honored to preserve those values through strategic, impactful philanthropy that will make a difference.  It’s who you are and what we do,” said Linda Carter, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Broward.

The special guests, nine-year-old twins, Hadley and Delaney and their 13 year old brother, Peyton shared their passion for science, fun and philanthropy and proved you are never too young to consider your legacy. Each child is a clear example of the transfer of values from parents, Shannon and Jonathan who have taught these three amazing young achievers to always strive for excellence and to measure success by how they help others.  

Aside from being Fundholders of The Twice as Good Foundation Fund at the Community Foundation of Broward, Hadley and Delaney are putting the fun back into healthy eating with a hit cooking show, Twice as Good and their new cookbook for kids.  Their television show airs on PBS stations across the country and is now in its third season.  Their cookbook is sold on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble and each sale supports their Fund. Hadley and Delaney demonstrated some kitchen chemistry and taught guests how to make a delicious carrot cake that was served as the luncheon’s dessert.

Not to be outdone, Peyton dazzled the audience with several experiments that integrated scientific principles with Community Foundation Funds.  By helping guests calculate the odds of guessing a perfect Final Four bracket and enlisting the help of a few volunteers to blow out candles with air guns, he showed how Legacy Society Members and Fundholders beat the odds and create a ripple effect with their philanthropy.    

Peyton is the youngest ever winner of the Discover Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge  and he recently wowed President Obama at the 2014 annual White House Science Fair.  He is also quite the inventor and has multiple patents pending, including one that helped his sisters learn to ride a bike.  To top it off, Peyton is also a star golfer who recently played in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am STEM Challenge with actor and director, Clint Eastwood.  At the tournament Peyton played for his charity - the Multiplied Foundation Fund at the Community Foundation and won $100,000 for his Fund to help promote science, technology, engineering and math education.
