Dianne Triplett's Love of the Arts Turns into a Story of Giving Back
Dianne Triplett is pictured above enjoying one of her favorite activities. In addition to her board service and volunteer work at PARC, Dianne is Deputy General Counsel at Duke Energy Florida and has recently married.
Dianne's long-time interest in the arts is what initially led her to accept an invitation to tour the PARC campus. Dianne was excited to learn more about PARC, especially the Inspired Arts Studio. On the tour, Dianne was fascinated by the imaginative paintings the class was busy creating as well as by the colorful artwork displayed throughout the studio. She was recruited to serve on the PARC Board of Directors and has held a variety of roles over the past four years. Her belief in the PARC mission is best expressed by her recent election as PARC Board Chair for 2017-2018. Dianne also began volunteering at PARC and even encouraged a group of her colleagues to volunteer. Dianne and her colleagues helped with the Holiday Sale and painted the Burt Muller Home, and Dianne participated in a local Triathlon to raise funds for PARC.
After hearing about opportunities to give to PARC through her retirement plan at a Board meeting, Dianne recently decided to make a gift to PARC through
her company's 401(k).
Dianne: "Although I regularly give money and time to PARC, becoming a part of the Legacy Society was a unique and painless way to support
PARC. I simply went online to my company's 401(k) account and changed my beneficiary to PARC. With any luck, PARC will not get a check from that account until
some point way in the future. But it is nice to know that someone like me, who doesn't have a wealthy estate or sufficient funds at this point in my life for
a named endowment, can still make a difference in our community."
Is a beneficiary designation gift right for you?
If you own a qualified retirement plan, such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b) and would like to make a legacy gift, you will find it easy to update your beneficiary designation form naming PARC as a beneficiary or partial beneficiary. Beneficiary designation gifts from retirement plans may help your heirs avoid paying income tax and may help your estate avoid estate taxes.
