May is Leave A Legacy month

Estate planning is often overlooked as a way to contribute to your favorite charity(s).  May has been designated LEAVE A LEGACY MONTH to encourage individuals to consider planned giving as a way to support non-profit organizations.

  • Planning a gift through your will may allow you to make a much larger gift than you can give during your lifetime.
  • You do not have to change your will to leave a bequest. You can simply add an amendment, called a codicil, to arrange for a gift upon your death.
  • It is easy to name a charity to receive part or all of an IRA, a 401(k), or a life insurance policy.
  • Your financial planner, attorney, or a development professional at your favorite charity, would be happy to answer your questions and assist you in carrying out your charitable intentions.
