What kind of legacy do you wish to be remembered by? Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) invites residents to consider their legacies with insights from Judi Taylor Cantor, CFRE, a planned giving expert and author for more than 40 years.
On Wednesday, Oct. 12, Cantor will lead “Philanthropic Love Stories,” a conversation about legacy planning and how others have made a lasting impact on the causes and organizations that matter most to them. This event, the Independence Legacy Society Luncheon, will be held from noon to 2 p.m., at the headquarters of MVES (300 Commercial St., #19, Malden, Mass.). All are welcome to learn more about legacy giving and the MVES Independence Legacy Society. Luncheon will be served. There is no charge to attend but RSVPs are required by Oct. 5.
Legacies enable people to pass on their values, not just their funds, and to have a direct and positive effect on the future. They are also appealing for their practical aspects, such as providing a tax-exempt way to bequeath.
“MVES has been honored with legacy gifts over the years, and each one is unique and special,” said MVES Director of Development Jenny Vanasse. “We’re so pleased to have Judi Taylor Cantor visit MVES for this special presentation on how to make a positive charitable impact on organizations that donors care about through legacy giving.”
Cantor has an extensive background in legacies; she has led planned giving efforts for charitable organizations, including Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Centers and Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, American Museum of Natural History and Boston Symphony Orchestra.
The Independence Legacy Society of MVES honors and celebrates people who intend to include MVES in their will, estate plan or other forms of planned gifts. Your legacy gift will provide future generations of older adults and people with disabilities the care they need to be able to live with independence and dignity in their homes. As always, your gift benefits your community, assisting residents in the 11 towns and cities that MVES serves.
