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: In your will or estate plan you can list a specific dollar amount, percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate, that you want to go to Meals on Wheels.

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 55414, 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!

“You don’t know how good I feel inside when volunteers tell me they appreciate me. I’m very happy with Meals on Wheels, because I can live my life normally. These people make me feel like I’m still alive!”
