Did you know?
- A growing number of older adults who have wills include in them a bequest to a charitable organization
More than half never inform the charity of it in advance
- Motivations for making them include a desire to support the charity (97%) and an interest in a specific project for which the gift will be used (82%)
- Planned giving donors are spread out among all levels of income
The LWVCC can provide suggested wording to anyone in the process of writing or revising a will. (this comes from our national organization). Of course, we do not offer legal or financial advice, which we make clear.
Why not spread the word? This is a simple way to help assure the organization will continue its vital mission into the future.
