Goodman Center board of directors announces estate plan matching gift

The match is part of the center’s Love & Legacy campaign, which is funded by a grant from the Madison Community Foundation

March 20, 2023 |

The Goodman Community Center has set a goal of documenting 70 planned gifts by 2024 – the year the center will celebrate its 70th anniversary – and to help achieve that goal, the board of directors and committee members have offered up a matching gift.

“Goodman has been strengthening lives and securing futures to create a strong community for nearly 70 years,” said Holly Cremer Berkenstadt, Goodman board president. “In order to ensure the incredible work of the organization for decades to come, we must also invest in the financial future of Goodman as well.”

For the first 70 individuals or families who share their intentions to include Goodman in their estate plan, the board of directors and committee members will make an additional donation of $1,000 in that person’s honor. It is a way to make an impact immediately, as well as in the future.

The planned giving initiative is part of the center’s Love & Legacy campaign, which is funded in part by a generous grant from the Madison Community Foundation. In addition to the goal of documenting planned gifts, the Love & Legacy campaign hosts regular workshops on topics related to estate planning, finances, retirement, aging and more.

“For most of us, a gift in our estate will be the largest charitable contribution of our life,” said Dani Luckett, Goodman chief development officer. “This campaign aims to shine a light on the opportunity our community has to ensure what matters most to them – their legacy – lives on for generations.”
