We have been blessed in many ways. We want to share these gifts with others who will continue their education in the field of health care and then be able to give back even more to our community. In that way, our legacy will grow.
Missoula has helped our business grow and become successful. We believe we have an obligation to give back to the community which has supported us. Everyone who owns a business shares that obligation. It’s important to us to begin leaving our legacy now, so we can see the positive effects of our giving in the community.
Art makes life beautiful. Although I want my daughter to have some of my art, I also want to share part of it with those I don’t even know, with the hope that it will enrich their lives, as it has enriched mine.
I believe our natural surroundings contribute immeasurably to the quality of life I am privileged to enjoy in this valley. I feel an ethical obligation to do as much as possible to help preserve that quality for future generations by sharing some of what I have.
For more than a half-century, Missoula has been my home. It’s a special place. By leaving something to the charities I care about, I can help them continue to carry their mission after I am gone.
We believe volunteering and giving to charities reflects our desire to make a better life for our children and their families in our community. Planning for a lifetime giving ensures our desire doesn’t die when we do.
As stewards of Montana’s essentials – clean air, water and diverse native plants and animals- we will do all we can to leave this legacy to future generations.
Caring for others has been a high priority in our family for two generations. As we make our plans for the future, we want to make a difference in the community.
Five Valleys Land Trust does such good things, I decided to make a gift of my home to them. I can live in it until I die. It will then be theirs to sell or to use in whatever way it is best to help them continue their works.
I love Missoula. The community has been good to me and growing up here taught me a lot. I want to do my part to make sure generations after me experience the same caring culture I did – The culture that makes Missoula special.
We have, through our wills, directed donations to non profit organizations because they have been important parts of our lives and the lives of those around us. Many very significant and valuable programs in our community could not survive without private giving. We believe they should continue far into the future. By leaving something to them in our wills, we can help that happen. We want those who come after us to be able to enjoy the benefits that are available now–excellent educational opportunities, a symphony orchestra, live theater, museums, hospitals, groups helping the young and the old, environmental organizations, and those aiding the homeless and the hungry. In other words, we want to leave this an even better place.View More Testimonials
