Anyone can leave a legacy of value. It isn’t necessary to be a person of great wealth to make a meaningful contribution. A gift from your estate can be designated to student scholarships or a program at the East-West Center. Although we hope you will consider the East-West Center in your estate plans, there is no charge or obligation to attend this seminar.
