Sarah Elizabeth Wright - Door County Habitat Legacy Philanthropist
On October 12, 2017, Sarah Elizabeth Wright said her goodbyes and peacefully transitioned from our world to the next following a brief illness. With her usual sense of humor and a bit of impatience, some of her last words were, "what is taking so long? I am ready."
Sarah was born on May 9, 1922 in Chicago, Illinois. She came to Door County in the early 50's with friends and purchased a shop in her adopted and beloved Ephraim, "the pearl of the peninsula". Sarah was a sports enthusiast, college field hockey player, and loyal Packers fan. She loved to play and watch golf, ski, traveled extensively, and did daily crossword puzzles. She, and her two best friends - Mary 'Bibs' McAghon, and Marge Binder were Peninsula Music Festival patrons for many years.
Sarah, Bibs and Marge were three amigos, self professed 'unclaimed treasures', who lived long lives and enjoyed their adventures together with gusto. They loved entertaining and being social with young and old alike. Sarah had a great smile and laugh and loved a good joke.
Sarah was a quiet philanthropist who gave not only to many charities, but found ways to support and help individuals with her resources. She helped support educational pursuits for women locally, and if she knew of a need, she would fill it.
Recognizing the value of Habitat’s mission, local focus, and importance of a hand up to home ownership, Sarah supported Door County Habitat for Humanity with donations when she was alive. In her estate plans she included a gift to Door County Habitat for Humanity from her estate. Sarah defined her legacy through planned giving.
Her impact lives on with her donation. Door County Habitat is grateful for her foresight, kindness, and generosity.
You can follow Sarah's example with your own Legacy Gift. As you are making estate plans, please include Door County Habitat for Humanity. Legacy Giving adds another element to your individual giving, adds another revenue source to organizations that help secure their fiscal stability, builds an endowment to provide an ongoing source of income, and is an opportunity for a truly impactful gift.
Many donors do not have the resources to give major gifts on a regular basis, but can make a more significant one time gift by using other types of assets and estate planning. No amount is too small to have an impact and enable affordable home ownership.
If you want to make a difference and establish your own legacy, please contact Lori Allen, Executive Director, LoriAllen@DoorHabitat.org,
920-743-2869 (ext 106).
