Legacies are made by the impact of our lives upon others. A person is remembered for the weight of their character, marks of accomplishment, depth of compassion, personal warmth, generosity and values. Our legacy helps guide those who come after us.
Thoughtful estate planning is one means to leave a positive legacy and help people recall our priorities. For example, consider the effect of a plan including a provision for gifts to nonprofits like Oregon Right to Life Education Foundation (ORTLEF).
When you include ORTLEF in your estate planning, you declare to family and friends that you believe in and care about innocent human life in all its stages. Your parting gift becomes a clear declaration to others. As you look ahead to your legacy yet to be completed, would you also consider the tiny footprints yet to be conceived? Oregon Right to Life welcomes your questions regarding charitable giving. Please contact our office at 503-463-8563. As always, we urge you to consult an estate planning advisor regarding all planning strategies.
