Thinking of making a planned gift to Community Care Clinic? Meg Dees would like to talk with you. “A planned gift is a way for a donor to create a lasting legacy for an organization that they love,” says Dees, vice president of philanthropic advancement and regional affiliates for Foundation for the Carolinas. “A planned gift means that a person’s last act on this earth is a charitable one.”In her work, Dees often uses the quote about what philanthropy really means in communities: planting trees under whose shade you won’t sit. “Non-profit organizations in Salisbury have benefited from a great deal of philanthropy over the years,” Dees says. “That generation is starting to disappear, and their children, for the most part, do not live here.”But anyone can make a planned gift, Dees emphasizes.
