How to Create a Legacy of Philanthropy this Holiday Season

Finance & Planning

LegacyofPhilanthropy.jpgOften, the communities of Presbyterian Senior Living are blessed to receive gifts from individuals that have made a provision in their estate plans to support our mission. Ordinary people show extraordinary generosity by leaving legacy gifts that will make a difference in the lives of future residents and patients that we will serve. The stories of these individuals show that kindness is evident in people from all walks of life – with different income levels, professions, and passions.

Each of these people represents the very best humanity has to offer. Because of their indelible love of life and concern for others, their memories will never be extinguished, and their gifts will remind us all that we, too, can make a difference in the lives that follow.

The end of the year can be a time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. Making charitable gifts now can result in extra tax savings for 2015. Also, after the holiday parties and family gatherings end and decorations are put away, it would be a good time to review and update your will. It’s helpful to review your estate plans on a regular basis to ensure that your plans are up to date considering your current needs and circumstances.

Your thoughtfulness will impact the lives of residents and give their families peace of mind. You may designate your gift to support a specific community or project. Your gifts are greatly appreciated. We will be pleased to assist you and your advisors as you plan to leave your legacy.
