A Family Legacy of Giving
Karol Del Real is a giver. She gives of her time by delivering meals and serving on the Southwest Advisory Council. She gives of her resources by making generous donations throughout the year and by underwriting special events. "I enjoy volunteering and financially supporting Meals On Wheels because it is the most rewarding thing I do, and I know I am getting the biggest bang for my buck," Karol says.
But Karol wants to do more. She wants to make sure that Meals On Wheels clients will continue to receive home-delivered meals after she is gone. That is why she decided to include Meals On Wheels in her will.
When writing her will, Karol chose to leave a percentage of her estate to Meals On Wheels instead of a specific dollar amount. She has three grown children and five grandchildren, so it was important to her to provide for them first.
"My parents were very giving and generous; always putting others before themselves," Karol says, when describing what it was like growing up in a charitable family. Karol has established a memorial foundation in honor of her parents, who taught her the joy of giving through their lifetime of generosity.
"I fell in love with Meals On Wheels years ago when I first started as a meal-delivery volunteer." Karol feels good knowing that her estate plans will provide for the charitable work she loves.
