FINANCIAL PLANNING BEQUESTS AND WILLS


The Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat accepts gifts left in an individual’s Will. A bequest through your Will provides continuing support of the ongoing work of the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat.

Nobody looks forward to preparing their last Will and testament. But the fact is that if you do not prepare a Will, the state must do one for you. Chances are that the government’s priorities are not the same as yours. Each person’s Will is a testimony of values held.

A Will provides an additional opportunity to include the remembrance of a favored charity. Not only is it your right, exercisable by will, to distribute what is yours as you wish, but, by the same will, you can choose to benefit a charity such as the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat.

It is in your power to make a gift that goes on doing the good things you believe in, long after your death, thus serving as a living memorial through support of the cause or causes to which you are dedicated.

If you would like to consider making a planned gift donation to the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat, it is imperative that you carefully word your document. The specific language is as follows:

I give, devise, and bequeath to the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat, the sum of $______ to be used for the general purposes of said association. (or otherwise describe the gift. Often a percentage of the estate is designated.)

If you are considering remembering the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat in your Will, we can provide information and assist with the questions you may have. There is never a charge for this service.
