"If you could see your life only in images of yourself and your past, would you be pleased? At the end of the day, what is your story going to read? What is going to be your Legacy?" - Sagg Torrence, Film Lover and Producer
Planned giving and endowment
The Light Factory has established an endowment fund with Foundation of the Carolinas. This fund provides a vehicle for donors to make gifts that ensure long-term support for the Museum. Please contact the Executive Director or
of the Greater Charlotte Cultural Trust for more information.
A memorial gift is a thoughtful way to mark a special occasion or to honor the memory of a relative or friend. To make a memorial gift, send your contribution (along with acknowledgment information so we can notify the recipient or family) to The Light Factory. The person honored (or their next of kin) will be notified of your kindness. Memorial gifts can be designated to specific youth outreach programs, films, or gallery exhibitions.
The Taylor Family honors and remembers their brother and son...
During his lifetime, John Taylor developed a love of art, poetry, music and — most passionately — photography. John’s life was photography, both his career and a way of giving back to the community. When Johnny died in 1993, his family established the John Taylor Memorial Education Fund, which supports The Light Factory's Outreach programs.
