A Bequest to Further Good Work
Nancy and David were dedicated volunteers. Over the years, they had seen many individuals impacted by the good work of The Salvation Army. They wanted to create a legacy to provide future support to continue The Salvation Army mission.
Dave: The work of The Salvation Army was important to us and we provided support with current gifts, but wanted to do more. We received their newsletter and noted that we could make a gift from our estate and join The Salvation Army. We saw a picture of smiling people just like us and we wanted to be part of that group.
Nancy: We met with our lawyer to revise our wills and we each included a provision for a bequest. Our lawyer put language in the will that allows a percentage of our estate to go to The Salvation Army. This was easy to arrange and permits us to still use our assets during our lives if we need them.
We told their gift planner about our decision and were excited when we were invited to a special event honoring us. We will continue to make gifts during our lives, but it feels good to know that our support will help in the future.
