Planned Giving

By including a gift to the Older Persons’ Commission (OPC) in your estate plan, you can have an ongoing impact on the future of seniors who live in the Rochester, Rochester Hills and Oakland Township communities. You can choose to direct your support to OPC as a whole, or to a specific program area, such as our Meals on Wheels, or Transportation Services, or any other program. Your legacy will continue to touch the lives of every senior that OPC helps.

From the founding of the OPC until today, many friends have demonstrated their commitment through their wills and trusts. Bequests have come in all sizes but have one thing in common: each has been used to help ensure the OPC’s ability to continue its important the work to meet the needs of future seniors.

Bequests from wills or trusts are the most popular form of planned giving nationwide. They are very simple to accomplish. Making this kind of gift can be done by including an additional statement to a will or trust, or by adding the gift to your current estate documents. With a bequest, supporters can establish a charitable legacy for the future, yet keep control of assets during life.

There are also many other ways to make a planned gift to OPC. For more information about planned giving, please contact the Development Office, at 248-659-1034, or
