With thoughtful estate planning, you can make a lasting difference for neighbors in need while providing for family and minimizing tax liabilities. The right gift plan can help you leave a legacy of caring and compassion for the communities and organizations that have meant the most to you.
The Legacy of Dorothy McIntyre
In 1975, Dorothy McIntyre, the founding director of People's Resource Center, gathered a small group of neighbors together around a powerful vision: that no one in DuPage County would have to go hungry, because neighbors helping neighbors would create hope and opportunity for all.
Dorothy and her friends sought to do more than simply start a food pantry. Their vision was to nurture a community rooted in generosity and service. To build relationships across the social and cultural borders that so often divide us. To bring neighbors together to meet the community's needs.
Dorothy found great joy in her life long work to foster compassionate community through peace and justice.
What Brings You Joy?
Have you found joy in giving generously to help those in need? In recognizing that you have been able to make a neighbor's life just a little bit easier? In seeing the smile of a child and knowing he won't go hungry tonight?
If being a part of the work and mission of People's Resource Center has brought you joy, consider creating a legacy gift plan to help sustain this community for future generations.
