How Do You Want to Be Remembered?

May 9, 2023

What comes to mind when you think about how you want to be remembered? Considering your support and interest in Daily Bread, one of the first things that may come to mind is “I want to be remembered as someone who cared.” As someone who made a real effort to take action on hunger and poverty in our city, and cared about the impact one’s life would have on others.  

Have you ever thought about how to keep the amazing work and impact you’ve already started going? How to amplify it so that you make a difference for the generations to come?  

One way is by leaving a gift to Daily Bread in your Will (after taking care of family, of course!). If this is something you have ever considered, here are a few simple steps you can take to get started:  

  1. Identify your goals. What kind of difference do you want to make? You can visit our Will Power page to see how a gift in your Will could be used and calculate your future impact after family is taken care of. 
  2. Talk to your family. A discussion around a shared legacy is a powerful way to bring loved ones together. It can become a bond-building exercise, a way to create lasting memories.   
  3. Speak to an expert. A financial advisor can help you realize the full potential of your future gift and the tax benefits involved. You can find an advisor in your region using Will Power’s advisor finder, or get advice from the free Will Power estate planning webinar

If you’re looking for more information, here are a few additional resources to help:

If the discussion around legacy gets you thinking about how to make a lasting contribution to Daily Bread Food Bank, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Andrew Clendinneng, Director of Individual Giving, at to talk about how a gift in your Will can become a powerful tool for change.
