Everyone is impacted by the experiences in their lives. It is what makes us who we are. Whether it is an illness or a hardship that touches us deeply, or a positive experience or opportunity that changed our lives – we all look for our own opportunity to give back and to make our world a better place. Throughout your lifetime you have supported causes that are important to you. By volunteering your time and your charitable donations, you have helped ensure that these organizations are able to continue their important work. Whether it is education, the environment, health related or faith based causes; you have played an important part in their continued success and ongoing work. How can you continue to make a difference – now and in the future?
Just as you give careful thought to many major decisions throughout your life, you will want to do the same when it comes planning your charitable gifts and your estate. Legacy giving is a gift for the future. You can make a major planned gift during your lifetime or you can plan to leave a bequest in your will. There are many ways to make a legacy gift and it may be your greatest opportunity to make a major difference in a way that matters most to you.
