Leave a LegacyThink of us when you make your estate plan. A bequest is the simplest way to leave a legacy gift and has no impact on your current income. Through a simple designation in your will or trust, you can leave behind such gifts as specific sums or assets, a percentage of your estate or trust, or the remainder of your estate while first taking care of your loved ones. You can create a bequest simply by asking your attorney to add a paragraph to your will in the form of a codicil. Your estate will receive an estate tax charitable deduction for the value of your bequest.
Other planned gift opportunities, including those that provide present income for you and your family, also are available.
For more information, contact 502-564-1792.
