Member Emeritus with March of Dimes and Legacy Donor
Each year thousands of Canadians designate a portion of their assets by making a bequest to benefit charitable organizations. Dr. David Logan has included March of Dimes as part of his estate planning.
Dr. Logan became involved with March of Dimes almost 35 years ago, when he became a member of the Board of Directors. He is now a member for life, the only person to hold that position.
Dr. Logan has always been involved with a number of charities. In the 1990s he was recognized with a Volunteer Award from the federal government for his extensive charity work. His work with March of Dimes was borne out of desire of both him and his wife to provide support to people who need help and are less fortunate. What has kept him active with March of Dimes over the years was the leadership team at March of Dimes and the organization’s willingness to try new ideas, implement new programs and continually innovate. Dr. Logan has been proud to have been a part of the evolution of March of Dimes, and that this legacy has offered opportunities for independence to thousands of Canadians living with disabilities.
Dr. Logan not only volunteers his time and expertise to March of Dimes, but is also a donor, and has pledged a legacy gift.
"I have spent so many years with March of Dimes and have seen firsthand how many people are helped by this organization," says Dr. Logan.
"It may be on some level a feeling of altruism, but I consider March of Dimes to be a part of my family, my other child..imagine the impact that you will make in others people’s life when you make a donation to March of Dimes. Your gift can provide so much good and help to people who need it," he continues.
"I enjoy knowing that my bequest might inspire others to do the same and leave a lasting legacy that will help children and adults with disabilities to live more independently for years to come."
