Legacy or planned giving is a wonderful way to support the things you care about most, now and after you’re gone.  For many donors, it’s also an important part of their estate planning. Legacy giving is a special way to commemorate the ties between you and New Directions Travel and create your own legacy.

Often people think of estate planning as something important to do, but it is often postponed.  However, working on your estate plans today can have many benefits, including the peace of mind from knowing that your wishes will be fulfilled.  When you include a provision for New Directions, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that in the future your loved ones or others with intellectual and developmental disabilities will benefit from your generous act today!
