Leave your Legacy and support the future of HMEA
At some point in one’s life there comes a moment to determine how you want your and/or your family legacy to be remembered.
After caring for loved ones, many people choose to make a Legacy Gift through their will to causes and organizations they care about. Wouldn’t you like your legacy of giving to live on?
Many people think you must be wealthy to have an estate and leave a gift. That’s not true.
We have four immediate real-life gift plans, that we know of, that will occur on the passing of four constituents of HMEA:
1. A no longer needed life insurance policy will be given to HMEA
2. The estate of an individual supported by HMEA will be transferred to HMEA upon that persons passing
3. Real estate property will be given to HMEA
4. A percentage of a person’s assets is bequeathed to HMEA upon that person’s passing
There are so many ways to leave your legacy. For details on becoming a founding member of The Horace Mann Promise Society, please fill out the form below and we will contact you.
When Carla had her first child, she decided to buy a life insurance policy. The policy provided peace of mind, knowing that it would cover child care, educational and transportation needs, in case of premature death. Along came child number two with special needs, and the policy became even more important to provide for the cooking, child care, advocacy and transportation needs that a single parent would require.
Now that her two children have reached adulthood, the policy is no longer needed to provide basic care for them and extra support for her husband. So she decided to modify the policy’s beneficiaries to include some of her favorite charities.
“Since I bought a whole life rather than a term insurance policy, my family is guaranteed the policy value upon my death. In addition to my husband and children, I added HMEA as a beneficiary, in gratitude for all the assistance that they provided to our family after my son’s autism diagnosis.”
Carla simply requested a new beneficiary form from her life insurance company, added HMEA as a beneficiary upon her death, and changed the percentages that each beneficiary would receive. She had the form notarized, sent it in, and became a founding member of HMEA’s Horace Mann Promise Society. This simple action will leave a legacy to support future families with vital services when they receive a devastating medical diagnosis.
Will you join her in making a lasting difference?
