Have you ever wondered how the people and charities you care about will fair when you are no longer here to help them? A good way to make certain that your values live on is by writing down what’s important to you. Another is by making provisions in your estate plan to ensure your charitable support continues. By including the Howie’s House in your will/bequest you can help to ensure that the Howie’s House is able to maintain their affordable fees and broad array of services for all who need support— now and in the future. It is an easy and simple way that you can support the future of the Howie’s House, and continue care for transplant patients and families. Bequests can be a percentage of the remainder of your estate or a specific dollar amount. If you already have prepared a will, you can simply add a codicil amending it to include the Howie’s House.
IS YOUR WILL DUE FOR AN UPDATE? Here are a few reasons that individuals or couples may need to update their will:
- A change in marital status
- The birth or adoption of a child or grandchild
- The death of an individual included in your will
- Retirement or relocation to another state
- A change in assets
- The start of a new business
- New tax laws
