A Legacy of Dignity

If you received DignityUSA’s Advent appeal letter early in December, we hope you took a look at the Legacy Circle brochure that was included. The Legacy Circle is comprised of DignityUSA supporters who include our organization in their planned giving and estate planning. Naming DignityUSA as a beneficiary in your will, life insurance, or 401(K) is a great way to have a long-term impact on the success of our mission.

We are very grateful to Thomas Cunningham of New York (left), who was very generous to both DignityUSA and Dignity/New York in his estate planning. As 2015 drew to a close, DignityUSA received $60,000 from the sale of Tom’s co-op, the final distribution in estate gifts that totaled over $155,000.

Tom, who had served as DignityUSA treasurer, a convention treasurer, and even, briefly, as Executive Director, has enabled his decades-long commitment to equality for LGBT Catholics to live on, even as we miss his presence.
