Spring 2021 Barnraising

Spring 2021 Barnraising

BARNRAISING

This section is intended to hold a place for announcements of relevant events and happenings, as well as invitations for participation, support, in the fashion of pulling your neighbors and loved ones together for an old-fashioned barn-raising. Here are a few such items to prime the pump for the next edition: 

 

LEGACY GIVING TO NMMW

Fed up with your nagging spouse, worthless children, and bratty grandchildren? Then why leave them all your money when you croak? Any NMMW man worth his salt would of course take full responsibility for anything not completely positive in his relationships!

Seriously, most of us would enjoy a lasting legacy to show that we have contributed to a cause that will benefit the lives of others for generations to come. A planned gift brings your thoughtful planning, vision and extraordinary generosity together in the form of a bequest, beneficiary designation on life insurance or a gift of art, stock, real estate or IRA charitable rollover to New Mexico Men’s Wellness. You can die knowing that your money will be well spent carrying on the good work done by the men you love.

You remain in control of your assets during your lifetime, it costs nothing and can reduce estate tax burdens. Bequests can be a specified dollar amount, a percentage of an estate, or tangible property. If you are considering this, it is important to notify our Board to ensure your intentions are understood and can be realized.

NMMW is a 501©3 organization and any gifts and bequests are tax deductible.

Our tax ID is 56-2503074

Thanks so much for considering!

 

SPRING GATHERING

Due to Covid restrictions, the NMMW Board of Directors

Voted to cancel the Spring Conference at Hummingbird Music Camp.

 

BRING A BUDDY

The Santa Fe and Albuquerque Bring A Buddy gatherings are still being held via Zoom. If you’d like to attend, please send me an email; I will send you the link to join us. Robert B. Younger (505) 250-1895 ryounger@galves.com.

Please remember that we are offering these events on the first Tuesday of every month and that we are open to having new presenters host a topic they have some passion around sharing with other men. 

One of our goals is to reach out to our male friends and invite them to share an experience of spending a few hours connecting with other men in a nurturing environment.

Next Santa Fe meeting Tuesday, April 6th at 6:45 p.m. presented by Vittorio La Cerva.

Topic for Discussion: What do I really want?

These five words become no less important as we age. We’ll explore how we invite clarity about our deepest desires, examine where the daily rhythms of our life honor our core values, and elucidate the importance of healthy boundaries in manifesting what we would like.
