If one of your clients arranges an estate gift for the benefit of InterVarsity, we would appreciate knowing about the gift, both so we can express our sincere gratitude and so we may remain in touch with them over the years. Also, as noted above, so we can make sure we will be able to fulfill the donor’s wishes. Of course, we respect the fact that in some cases donors prefer to remain anonymous.
Still, if you are willing to serve as an intermediary, a client of yours can share information about his or her plans without divulging his or her identity.
