Legacy Giving

Create a Legacy

One way to make a significant difference long after you are gone is through planned giving. Creating a legacy through planned giving ensures that vulnerable seniors will continue to have lifesaving meals and support services available. Your legacy during your lifetime and after will make a difference in the lives of seniors who depend on Meals on Wheels Diablo Region.

Examples of this type of planned giving include:

  • Providing for Meals on Wheels Diablo Region through a will or trust

  • Through your retirement plans, insurance policies, and bank/investment accounts

  • Through charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts


Pledge to include Meals on Wheels Diablo Region in your estate planning today, like one long-time donor did. Your commitment will continue to support seniors for many years to come.
