Dee has supported and advocated for clearly written and safe Death with Dignity laws since 2001.
I watched my mother, father, and two brothers die slow, horrible deaths. I’ve included the Death with Dignity National Center in my estate plans because I want to ensure future generations won’t have to suffer like my loved ones did.
My way of advocating for Death with Dignity is to help ensure the Death with Dignity National Center’s long-term financial strength. A wonderful way to accomplish this is to do what I’ve done and include them in your estate plans. In doing so you’ll leave a legacy of dignity to future generations.
Two of the most common ways are bequests and planned gifts. It’s never too late to plan ahead, and tax time is a good annual reminder to look at one’s estate plans. It’s very easy to include Death with Dignity National Center in your bequest; here’s some sample language to use:
I give, devise, and bequeath to the Death with Dignity National Center, 520 SW 6th Avenue, Suite 1220, Portland, Oregon 97204, EIN #: 93-1162366, ______% of my estate or the sum of $____________ (or describe stocks, bonds, life insurance, or other assets) to be used for the general purpose of defending and promoting Death with Dignity laws throughout the United States.
You can even designate the Death with Dignity National Center as a beneficiary on your life insurance or retirement plan to create a permanent legacy for change. If you have questions about including the Death with Dignity National Center in your estate planning, please email or call DeVida at 503.228.4415 or speak with your attorney.
