You Can Make A Difference
by Billy E. Hixon, CPA Chairman, United Way of the Ozarks and Planned Giving Committee
How many times has the thought crossed your mind I'm only one person. What can I do to make a difference?
You can make a difference! Perhaps in one way perhaps in many ways. You likely have given of your time your energy and/or your dollars on an annual basis to help those that need your help.
When you are ready and at the right time please consider a more significant gift that will last forever and will keep giving every year to benefit those who need a helping hand.
The United Way of the Ozarks has established a permanent endowment program The United Way of the Ozarks Forever Fund which will serve to gather valuable resources. The annual income from those resources will help provide another level of assistance to the future generations of our Ozarks Community that have a genuine need for our help.
The idea of gift planning to The United Way Forever Fund makes a lot of sense for the Ozarks community and will help plan for the needs of future generations. There are concerns about the future. We all know what a difference our United Way makes but we also know that nothing in this world is certain. We do know that in the decades to come the needs of our community will most likely change perhaps radically. One thing that will not change is the United Way will be there supporting our community through the generosity of thousands. We do know that you can help prepare for tomorrow's needs by supporting and giving to the Forever Fund efforts of the United Way.
Don't be shy! Help us make Springfield and the Ozarks an even better place to live for our future generations. Contact Ann Dare at the United Way of the Ozarks so that we can show you the value and benefits of becoming an important part of the United Way Forever Fund program. There are so many ways you can help.
Yes you can make a difference!
