How will you be remembered one day?
How important is it to you to leave a legacy of kindness that will benefit the lives of others?
We are building a legacy—a legacy of what we believe in—every day we are alive. How we respond to life’s challenges show our significant other, our kids, our friends, our neighbors, and the Sunnyside community who we are and what we stand for.
Planned giving, as it factors into estate planning, is a tangible way to look at our life and our legacy not only in terms of relationships, but also in terms of wealth, possessions, and property. It is a way of reviewing how we can best give to the greater social good.
Ordinary people show extraordinary generosity through legacy giving. Financial assistance is essential to support and sustain Pro-Vision. Through legacy giving, people from all walks of life – with different income levels, professions, and passions, can demonstrate their indelible love of life and concern for others, their memories will live on, and their gifts will remind us all that we, too, can make a difference in the lives that follow ours.
