Charitable Giving Continued Through Bequest
Throughout her life, Esther Bartel as an educator touched the lives of many people. She taught and influenced many students at both private and public high schools as well as private and public colleges and universities.
Esther also served her church and her Lord as a Sunday school superintendent, organist and as a member of various committees. She made gifts to charities during her lifetime but was also interested in making sure this would continue at the "sunset of her life".
After discussing all the options with a planned giving advisor from Mennonite Brethren Foundation, Esther decided to leave a bequest in her will which would benefit her favorite charities. Her attorney took the simple language available from Mennonite Brethren Foundation and included a significant bequest. She was pleased to have the assurance that she would be helping others through Mennonite Brethren Foundation.
