How a Will can leave a Legacy

The need for a will has little to do with the size of one’s estate and much more to do with each person’s unique goals. For example, you need a will if: you care for dependent children or elders; you want to leave a bequest to a special friend, distant relative, or favorite charity; or simply because you do not wish to leave the planning of final affairs to the court system.

Planning is Important

Making a will is an essential process in life planning, requiring careful deliberation and reflection about what has been most important over a lifetime. Wills are as varied as the values of the people who make them. However, effective estate planning is often based on three fundamentals: the financial needs of immediate family are cared for first; planning for heirs comes second; and everything else comes third. In planning your will, you could set aside a certain percentage for charity or leave a favorite cause the share of one heir.

Wills are not just for the wealthy

Many leading institutions have been built not only by the wealthy, but by thousands of regular folks. In fact, it might be said that most people can only make their ultimate charitable gifts at the end of their lifetimes. Changing tax laws offer new opportunities for our donors to benefit their families through charitable planned giving, which may result in tax savings of income, inheritance or estate taxes. A bequest may be directed to a special charitable endowment fund where only the earnings from the gift are used each year and the principal will grow are to ensure children in the future receive the same life-changing services. You will have the enormous satisfaction of knowing your values will be expressed in perpetuity by providing ongoing support to a cherished cause.
