Leave Behind a Legacy of Generosity to the Irvington Community

workplace-charities

It’s a beautiful thing to give back to the community you grew up in well after you have made your peace, thus improving the quality of life for the generations to come.

Baltimore is rich in diverse neighborhoods, but those neighborhoods themselves are not always financially stable and thriving. In fact, no matter how well off a neighborhood may seem – there is always someone in need who could benefit from a helping hand.

Irvington isn’t just a southwest Baltimore neighborhood, it’s a true community full of hard working and devoted people who want the best quality of life for themselves and their neighbors. Let’s talk about how My Brother’s Keeper can help you leave behind a legacy of generosity to the Irvington community you know and love.

Plan Ahead to Leave a Donation Behind

There are several ways you can assist with our efforts to serve members of the Irvington community who are in need, including planned giving through a bequest or will. When you donate to My Brother’s Keeper through a bequest, gift of stock, life insurance policy, or trust fund, you are enabling us to have an increasing impact in our community. It’s a beautiful thing to give back to the community you grew up in well after you have made your peace, thus improving the quality of life for the generations to come. You may also benefit from significant tax and income advantages. If you wish to make a bequest in your will to leave My Brother’s Keeper a specific amount of funding, please do so in the following format:

“I give and bequeath to My Brother’s Keeper the sum of _________ dollars or ________ % of my estate.”

For more information about planned giving, please contact Fr. Michael Murphy at mmurphy@msjnet.edu.

What is the Zone 29 Club?

When you grow up in Irvington, the community bond will always stick with you. The term “Zone 29” is near and dear to many past and present residents of Irvington who hold cherished memories in our community with their family and friends. The Zone 29 Club offers you yet another opportunity to help us give back to those in need in the 21229. To become a member of the Zone 29 Club, you must contribute a minimum donation of $1,000 annually, which can be paid in monthly installments or all at once. Interested in volunteering your time instead? We’d love to have you.
