Third in a series from the WC Foundation Legacy Committee
By Vic Millner
As noted in the article by Ken White in the April 12th Weekly Calendar we, as residents of Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg, are blessed to be the beneficiaries of so much that goes into what is referred to as “Life Refreshed”.
The Foundation is here to manage assets for the benefit of our programs, facilities, residents and staff members. To carry out its mission, the Foundation needs to secure contributions and gifts.
Most of us probably have estate plans in place. If your estate plan doesn’t include a gift to the Foundation for whatever purpose that you choose, I urge you to modify it to include the Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg Foundation.
My family has a long history with our campus, from my uncle’s service as a member of the original Board of Trustees to being residents. My parents moved in during the early years of WC; my aunt lived here; my sister, Norvell, moved to campus in 2011; and I followed her in 2015. And now my cousin, Joe Payne and his wife, Katherine, are residents too. I feel as if I came home when I came to Westminster Canterbury and it feels good.
I’ve made a commitment to remember WC through my estate plan and hope you will consider doing the same. There are a number of ways to make a gift to the Foundation as part of your own legacy. In addition to cash and securities, you can assign an IRA, use life insurance that you no longer need, provide for a charitable remainder trust, and other options.
Debbie Callahan in the Development Office (ext. 3507) or any member of the Foundation Legacy Committee will be pleased to talk with you about your plans for such a worthy cause. Members of the WC Foundation Legacy Committee are:
