Legacy Builders

Primary Motivation: Leaving a Legacy

As a Legacy Builder, you are a visionary who looks beyond today to your dreams for the future. You want your life to count for something both now and after you are gone. If you have children, it is important to you to leave behind an inheritance for your kids. When an organization or cause becomes important to you, you will make a significant investment both in the present and in long-term planning. You want to leave a mark on the world that is bigger than yourself.
