Bequests

Bequests
Joe and Anna have been faithful supporters of our organization. They believe it is important to help further our mission.

Joe: Anna and I believe Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound is truly helping others. It is important to us to partner with them to make a difference. That is why we have made several gifts over the years.

Anna: But we wanted to do more than just make gifts. Joe and I have been careful and have been able to save enough for retirement. We plan to be generous with family, but we also have the ability to be generous with charity.

Joe: After talking it over, we decided to leave a bequest in each of our wills. Our attorney took the simple language available from the organization and included a nice bequest in my will as well as Anna's. We are delighted that we will be helping others through these gifts.
