Our influence lives on beyond us. Will our influence continue to impact efforts for justice and equality for LGBTQ people? If so, your impact will influence the whole society because when one prospers, all prosper.
One way you can continue to express your concern for long lasting justice and equality is to arrange for a portion of your resources to be donated to organizations that will do that for you. The New Harvest Foundation is such an organization.
We are grateful for three benefactors who designated New Harvest in their wills. The first was Henry Dudek, who was one of the founders of New Harvest. The second was Bill Miller, who had served on the Board and offered his excellent photographic skills to the organization. The third was a bequest received from the estate of Dr. Mark A. Hansen, who died on December 18. 2010. All of us are indebted to these persons who gave of themselves and whose commitment to justice will continue.
New Harvest would be willing to discuss with you arrangements for preparing a will that reflects your wishes to have your influence continue beyond your lifetime.
