Imagine the thousands of parents and children Door of Hope will serve in the next 50 years – the jobs gained, the careers launched, the savings built, the healing begun, the housing found, the faith born. It’s remarkable to think that your decision today could have a profound impact on a family we don’t yet know. But that’s the magic of “legacy giving.”
“Jesus tells us to feed the hungry, care for the sick, and show love to our neighbors. That’s why in addition to our annual financial support, we are pleased to make a substantial contribution from our eventual estate to Door of Hope.” – Dick & Darlene Kleinert
“Vision with action makes a powerful reality.”
– Ron Kaufman
