Consider that 85% of Americans give to charity yearly, yet only 6% of estates indicate a planned gift to charity.

While Upper Des Moines Opportunity, Inc. receives some support from government agencies, much of our funding comes from people just like you who give generously throughout their lives. Your charitable gift in your will or estate plan can help our organization's work well into the future. YOU can make a difference in the lives that follow!

Consider what just 1% of your assets could accomplish!

To learn more about planned giving visit with your Financial Advisor and contact UDMO Executive Director, Julie Edwards.
