Community Fund should be notified when a Designated Advocate dies. We require a certified death certificate. If the Joinder Agreement identifies a successor, Community Fund will reach out to that person or entity to confirm that he or she will serve as the new Designated Advocate. If the Joinder Agreement does not identify a successor, Community Fund will work with the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary’s guardian, or other important people in the Beneficiary’s life to find a successor. Community Fund strongly recommends that multiple successor Designated Advocates be named in the Joinder Agreement to ensure there is no lapse in representation.
