Leaving a Legacy: Planned Gifts Crucial to School

Mary Jane Ihle Clark dedicated her life to helping people with intellectual disabilities and improving the lives of others. Through her work, she made a big impact on others, and she wanted to do the same with her estate plan. Knowing the importance of caregivers, she included a bequest in her will to provide support for the School of Nursing.
