What will my legacy be?

When each of us clearly identifies our passion and takes action, we truly can make a difference.

In mid-May, women gathered in Lake Placid and Plattsburgh to explore the question, “What do I want my legacy to be?” with planned giving specialist Susan Axelrod. The events, hosted by Dodie Giltz and Nancy Rosenthal, were joint efforts of Adirondack Foundation and the Foundation for Champlain Valley Physician’s Hospital. Participants have told us that they’re viewing their giving differently, now basing priorities on where their passions lie.

Susan’s “document locator” is a tool she recommends to people who are thinking about the future. The personal results can be a mind at peace and loved ones grateful that the paperwork is organized. If you would like a copy, please email janine@adkfoundation.com.

Adirondack Foundation is here to support you, answer questions about what is possible, and provide information about the region’s nonprofit organizations.
