Steps to a Better Estate Plan

  • Confer with your attorney or investment professional to create an estate plan that meets both your charitable and financial goals.
  • Keep your plan updated when major life events occur, such as changes in relationships, births, deaths, and change in residence. Also, consider changes in tax laws and update your plan accordingly.
  • Protect your family and loved ones by ensuring taxes don’t put a burden on them. Careful estate planning can ensure you’re making the most prudent financial decisions.
  • Be certain to clearly state your wishes in your will and other pertinent documents. It’s best to seek out an attorney experienced in estate planning, who can help create an estate plan that gives you and your loved ones peace of mind.
  • Consider charitable gifts in your estate plan that will continue to help others after your lifetime, such as a gift to the QCES Foundation. There is no better way to ensure your legacy while supporting a cause that is important to you.
