Legacy Giving Post-Pandemic
All giving, whether to friends, family or even strangers is experienced as pleasurable – legacy giving included. It might feel uncomfortable discussing leaving a gift in your Will during a time of crisis (especially a global health one), but the same feel-good chemicals of oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine and endorphins are released whenever a gift is made.
As we move out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to hold onto these good feelings. All of us want to be part of a caring community that comes together for better. Leaving a legacy gift is a great way to build a better future.
When you leave a legacy gift to a charity you support, you are thinking towards the future of your community. You are supporting those organizations that are the “helpers” and work tirelessly to make our community a better and healthier place to live in for generations to come. As children’s show host Mr. Rogers said “Look for the helpers. You will always find people helping”.
