How Does My Will Relate To Estate / Planned Giving?

The simplest and most commonly used method to plan an estate gift is through your Will.  Your Will ensures that your estate is distributed according to your specific wishes, including bequests to organizations like Grace Village that make a real ongoing difference in the lives of the seniors who helped build our community.

You can review your giving strategy and tax implications with your own financial advisor and update your Will with your notary.  You have a number of options on how to designate bequests to Grace Village - specific assets, defined portions of your estate, specific dollar amounts, trusts etc.  Choose which option best meets your needs!

Plan to give a gift with real impact - a living legacy to your generosity!
