An Example of How It Works

Young family with kidsWith three minor children, Andrew and Amy knew that it was time to create an estate plan for their family. They found that the estate planning process helped them reflect on the people and nonprofits that were important to them and the legacy they would like to leave. They learned how easy and flexible it can be to include one sentence to make a gift to the IRC for a percentage of their estate or a specific dollar amount.
