Donor Testimonials

“The best use of life is to invest in something which will outlast life.”

~ William James

“After many years of being an annual donor to TBCF, as well as a member of the board, I decided that this was an organization that I would enjoy making a real difference in its long-term sustainability. After discussion with my family, we thought the best way to accomplish this was with a planned gift. In particular, I decided to use my 401(k) plan as the vehicle for two reasons. The first was that it was incredibly tax efficient. The second was that I could make the change with a simple change of beneficiary form sent to my HR department. No attorney or CPA was required! I believe that TBCF’s Financial Support and Emotional Support Programs are something I want to preserve as my legacy. My planned gift accomplishes this!”

~ Jim Bechtel
