Create Your Vision for the Future with This Important Document
Momentous events like a milestone birthday, a marriage, or retirement are a time to celebrate and reflect on your life and what the future might hold. It’s also a chance to think about the legacy you hope to pass onto future generations. A legacy is more than a collection of valuable assets; it also includes the values that define who you are.
One way you can ensure that your values endure is through will planning. Will planning is the highly personal process of deciding how your estate will be distributed after your lifetime, and the impact your bequests can have on carrying on your values. In addition to bequests to family and friends, you can include in your will charities that align with your values.
Because you value the work Horizons Foundation and the future of the LGBTQ community is important to you, consider a bequest to the LGBTQ Community Endowment. See our sample bequest language.
Start at the Beginning
Create a will. Through this important document, you can direct the division of your property the way you choose. Download our free Guide to Making Your Will brochure here.
Already have a will? Don’t set it and forget it! Review it every couple of years to ensure that it has kept pace with your life. Events like a new marriage, adoption, birth, or death of a family member are important times to review your will and make sure it still protects you and the people you love.
Go a Step Further
Share your intentions with your heirs and loved ones. If supporting Horizons is a part of your future plans, tell them why our work is important to you. These conversations help ensure that your family understands your intentions.
