LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY

While many individuals provide a lifetime of generous gifts for family, friends and organizations they care about, over half of U.S. adults do not have a will or other estate plan. Without a will, your estate will be divided according to the state in which you live. And the result may be very different from what you had wished, especially if your desire was not only to care for those you leave behind, but to leave a lasting legacy for the causes close to your heart.

The Open Door Mission can help make sure your wishes are followed.

If you have already included the Mission in your will, please let us know so we can say “thank you.”
