An Eagle Helping Build a “Nest Egg” for Future Generations
Scouting was important to Steve as he was growing up. Steve, who earned the rank of Eagle, recalls the mentorship of youth leaders, participation in the National Jamboree and serving on camp staff as truly formative. He sees Scouting as an effective way of helping young people acquire life skills, particularly leadership skills, and learn about mentoring others.
He and his wife, Judy, are big proponents of planned giving, as they know this can be an important way of building assets for an organization and keeping it strong in the long term.
Steve: “Planned giving allows an individual to leave a legacy and, depending on the type and size of gift and personal circumstances, positively benefit their family and kids in ways that ultimately support charitable organizations too. Given the tax laws, would you rather give it to the IRS or Northern Star Council? I would rather give it to Scouting thank you very much!”
At Northern Star Scouting, we have many helpful resources for you to learn about financial planning, tax savings, health tips and more. It is as easy as signing up for our monthly Gift Legacy eNewsletters, downloading our Wills Guide or visiting our Planned Giving website at http://plannedgiving.northernstarbsa.org/.
