Life Insurance for which all the premiums have been paid is an ideal way to make a charitable contribution as long as the life insurance policy names OPC as the owner and beneficiary.
From the founding of the OPC until today, many friends have demonstrated their commitment through their wills and trusts. Bequests have come in all sizes but have one thing in common: each has been used to help ensure the OPC’s ability to continue its important the work to meet the needs of future seniors.
Bequests from wills or trusts are the most popular form of planned giving nationwide. They are very simple to accomplish. Making this kind of gift can be done by including an additional statement to a will or trust, or by adding the gift to your current estate documents. With a bequest, supporters can establish a charitable legacy for the future, yet keep control of assets during life.
There are also many other ways to make a planned gift to OPC. For more information about planned giving, please contact the Development Office, at 248-659-1034, or email@example.com.
