"We are strong supporters of Planned Parenthood because of the work it has always done to help women plan their pregnancies by providing accurate information and access to effective birth control. We believe that everyone benefits when children are born to women in healthy relationships who have determined they have the time, energy, and resources to devote to those children. Our future gift is a way for us to continue to support Planned Parenthood far into the future."
"As a retired school nurse, over the years I recognized the need for non-judgmental care. Planned Parenthood provides that with their education and health services. Contributing to their work is important to me because I know people need them."
"Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has been helping people here in Iowa for decades. I want to help assure they will always be able to serve everyone who comes to them. As a retired school administrator, I know full well — their caring mission fills a perpetual need."
"It is an organization that lessens pain and poverty for many individuals. I have always believed that if every child that was born was planned, loved and wanted, so very many of the problems of the world would go away. Planned Parenthood's education and services offer some control of their lives to those most in need."
"I'm so proud to be part of the organization that is Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the work that is done every day through health care, education and advocacy to make sure those who depend on us can access the care they need to lead healthier, more self-determined lives. I know my planned gift will help assure this organization has the resources to continue this critical work for generations to come."
"It was such an honor and so humbling to help women get the health care they needed at the South Street clinic so many years ago. Being on the front lines with my fellow escorts, dedicated volunteers all, was one of the most rewarding duties I have experienced in the nearly 30 years of my association with Planned Parenthood."
"Women need to be able make their own choices about their reproductive health and to help other women (and men) find organizations that support these choices. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is here to ensure that place is always available ... nurturing, professional and affordable."
"I know that sharing a sustainable gift that continues to support Planned Parenthood well beyond our years on this planet will help make sure this 100-year-old movement is around for the next 100 years. I will do my part to make sure every woman can be assured of the opportunity to choose her own path to a healthy and meaningful life. "
"I believe that access to reproductive healthcare is paramount for every community in the world."
Patricia and Alan Egly
"When we made the decision to become Legacy Society members, we asked ourselves, 'Where would we be without Planned Parenthood of the Heartland?' We didn't want to find out, so we acted. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is an enduring institution that has demonstrated strength and leadership across the region. We know our gift will help women and families get the quality healthcare they need for years to come."
