A Bequest to Further Good Work

A Bequest to Further Good Work

Beverly was a dedicated volunteer. Over the years, she had seen many individuals impacted by the good work of United Methodist Women. She wanted to create a legacy to provide future support to continue our mission.

Beverly: The work of United Methodist Women was important to me and I provided support with current gifts, but wanted to do more. I received their newsletter and noted that I could make a gift from my estate. I saw a picture of smiling people just like me and I wanted to be part of that group.

Beverly: I met with my lawyer to revise my will and I included a provision for a bequest. My lawyer put language in the will that allows a percentage of my estate to go to United Methodist Women. This was easy to arrange and permits me to still use my assets during my life if I need them.

Beverly: I told their gift planner about my decision and was excited when I was invited to a special event honoring me and other donors. I will continue to make gifts during my life, but it feels good to know that my support will help in the future.
