The gift of education for the holidays

John Lantz, FCA National Board of Trustees.

I was talking with Kathy Long, Executive Director of Peoples Memorial Association (PMA) and I think she has a really great idea! How about giving the gift of a membership in the local FCA to your nieces, nephews, and friends in the next generation? Kathy said she looks to see where they live, and finds the FCA that covers that location. You can sign them up as a member for a Christmas gift or any other special occasion. Kathy reports very positive feedback from the people she’s made this gift to in the recent past.

This will encourage a discussion between the generations about planning while it is benefiting both the recipient and the local FCA. Also it will solve the problem of what present to give. I will try the idea for this Christmas, and would like to see the feedback others get when they give an FCA membership to the younger generation in their families. Leave us a comment below!

John, I didn’t realize y’all hadn’t thought of this as gifts. I have to say most of my friends and family who get this gift aren’t quite sure what to think, but I’m pretty sure they’ll thank me when they need it!
I now refer to my self as our family’s “Aunt Deathy” rather than Aunt Kathy!
