Your Legacy - Our History
The InterServ Foundation: Your Legacy of Support for InterServ
For more than 100 years, InterServ has been working to alleviate the effects of poverty on people living in Northwest Missouri. Legacy donors — those who support the organization through annual donations and who, even as they pass on from this life, honor their commitment to the poor and those who need our help by remembering InterServ through planned giving arrangements — have kept InterServ vibrant and thriving and doing important work for all of that time. From the beginning, caring and generous people have supported InterServ with annual donations, as well as estate gifts. But times have changed and the world of planned giving has changed with it. Through The InterServ Foundation, those committed individuals, passionate about helping the people of the greater Saint Joseph metro area, can learn about different kinds of planned gifts—such as bequests, gifts of personal residences, and payments through trusts—allowing them to create and implement their own unique lifetime giving plans to help further the mission of InterServ.
Over the next few months, as the staff and board of The InterServ Foundation work to put together our plan for supporting InterServ into its next century of service, our website will highlight a variety of creative options for leaving YOUR legacy, while also introducing you to our newly-created Legacy Society and to some generous donors who have taken the step of creating planned gifts. We invite you to accompany us on this exciting journey, moving our Foundation into the future and working on ways to better InterServ and those who rely on its programs and services. Check back often or give us a call (816) 238-4511, ext. 225. We will be happy to help you clarify your giving goals and assist you in any way that we can.
