First in a series from the WC Foundation Legacy Committee
By Charlotte Fischer
I am so grateful to live here at Westminster Canterbury. To feel safe and protected throughout the pandemic has been so comforting. Westminster Canterbury is important to me for many reasons, not the least of which are friends, the support services that are so terrific and the peace of mind in knowing that whatever comes I have a secure place to spend the rest of my life.
What does WC mean to you? Have you thought about how you might express your gratitude for being able to live here in this caring place? Have you ever thought about what you might be able to do through your own estate plans?
It is important that we consider leaving a legacy to the organizations that have had meaning for us during our lives or the lives of our family members. The size of what you choose to leave as a legacy is not nearly as important as the act of just saying; “Thank you and let me help you continue to help others in the years to come”.
My husband and I made provision for the Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg Foundation through our estate plans a number of years ago. We chose to remember the place that later made my husband’s last years the best possible anywhere. I know it will do the same for me as it will for you.
Please think about what this place means to and for you. There are many ways to leave your own legacy to Westminster Canterbury. If it is as important to you as it is to me, talk with Debbie Callahan or a member of the Foundation’s Legacy Committee. They will help you get started on crafting the legacy gift you have in mind.
