Living Legacy Circle

ADEC's Living Legacy Circle

A Community of Givers and Supporters of ADEC's Legacy

All donors who make arrangements to support ADEC through a planned gift are invited to join the Living Legacy Circle. Members of the Living Legacy Circle will be recognized in this space of the website, as well as during the ADEC Annual Conference. (Donors may request anonymity, in which case their names will not appear.) Members of the Living Legacy Circle also receive a certificate of appreciation, invitations to occasional special events, and the gratitude of the students and professionals in ADEC who will benefit from your generosity.

Already have ADEC in your estate? Contact Headquarters at +1-612-337-1808 to let us know of your planned gift or complete and submit this Notice of Gift; you can be added to our Living Legacy Circle.

These members of the Living Legacy Circle have designated ADEC as a beneficiary in their long-term gift planning or whose bequest has already been received.

"When Ira lost his beloved wife Pauline, after a scant six months of marriage, he went into a tailspin.After he found ADEC, it gave him a purpose in which he could deeply believe, and a much-needed focus and direction. Supporting and helping so many people come to terms with their own personal losses was a testament to the man he was. It was his hope that, through his financial donation, he would in some small way help others."

Ruth Nerken (sister of Ira Nerken, JD)
