The More I Give the Better I Feel
Twenty years ago, June Voss retired from work with a grateful heart - and a sizeable nest egg. "My mother taught me to save at least half of everything I earned. We were poor, really poor. I know how that feels," says the 86-year-old.
June learned that by putting her savings into annuities, the money kept on growing - and so did her desire to help others. One day she discovered the Marianists and liked what she saw. "The Marianists are making a difference, especially among the poor. They also are wonderful about staying in touch and keeping me informed about how they are using my gift annuity.
"I've given lots of money away, but I like annuities the best because the money keeps on growing. There's nothing like the satisfaction of using your money to help others. I've found that the more I give - the better I feel."
