Legacy Giving

Become a Sustaining Donor - Meals on Wheels

Donating a legacy gift to Meals on Wheels is a great way to make a lasting impact in your community. By including Meals on Wheels in your will or estate plan, you help secure the future of Meals on Wheels and ensure that seniors in your community get the nourishment and daily visit they need for years to come.

The most straightforward way you can make a legacy donation is by including Metro Meals on Wheels in your will or estate plan. There are two simple ways you can do this:

Bequests: We have partnered with FreeWill to help you create your legal will and legacy gift online, for free. Through FreeWill’s secure tool, you can list a dollar amount or percentage of your estate that you want to go to Meals on Wheels. Create your free plan and legacy gift today.

If you would prefer to work with an attorney, you can also save on legal costs by using FreeWill to document your wishes and planned gift first.

If you are creating or amending your will on your own, you can use the following specific language for bequests to Metro Meals on Wheels: I [your name] give to Metro Meals on Wheels Inc, 1200 Washington Ave., Suite #380, Minneapolis, MN 55415, EIN #31-1501057, percent of my estate, or the sum of dollars, or the remainder of my estate.

Beneficiary Designation: Another easy and tax-beneficial way to include Metro Meals on Wheels in your estate plan is by designating it as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy or your retirement account. Designate Metro Meals on Wheels, Inc., EIN #31-1501057, and contact your insurance agent or financial planner to confirm your plans.

There are numerous other ways to make legacy gifts and Metro Meals on Wheels is happy to work with you and your financial planner to accommodate your needs. And if you plan to make a legacy gift, we’d love to hear from you! Contact Metro Meals on Wheels Executive Director Patrick Rowan at (612) 623-3363 or [email protected] to discuss your legacy giving plans.

Meals on Wheels programs in the Twin Cities have been providing nourishment and helping seniors live independently for more than 40 years. With your help, Meals and Wheels will be able to continue this important service for years to come!
