Wills and Estate Plan Gifts
The decision to make a will is an important step in ensuring that those you love will get the maximum value from your estate. Through the use of wills and other estate planning tools, you can provide for your loved ones and also continue your good works after you die. Steps can also be taken to reduce expenses and speed up the process of distributing your property.
You can name Mission:Dignity as a beneficiary in your will, estate plan, charitable trust, IRA or retirement account.
Suggested way to word a bequest:
