FAQs about legacy giving

What can I do with a Will?

With a valid Will or Trust, you can choose who gets your property, name guardians for your children, provide a home for your pets, and more. It takes only 20 minutes, and you can update your documents later if your plans change.

Who is a Will for?

Everyone should make a Will or Living Trust, regardless of wealth. Having a plan in place ensures your wishes are known and saves your loved ones the stress and cost of intestate probate proceedings.

What is an Estate Plan?

An Estate Plan is a set of legal documents that reflect your values, beliefs, desires, and decisions. It generally includes your Will, powers of attorney, advanced health care directives, and trusts for you, your family members, your church, and even charities you care about.
