Fall is often a time of getting our lives and matters in order after a busy and more carefree summer season. So, it’s a great time to reflect on what we value and implement plans to protect what and who we love most.
And since this is National Estate Planning Awareness Week (NEPAW), there’s no better time than now.
Over 67% of American adults don’t have an up-to-date legal will. Many don’t think they need one; however, no matter how old you are or how much wealth you have, creating your will is a necessary task for you to secure your future. This NEPAW, we want to support you in making a plan that:
- Protects your loved ones
- Empowers you to control important decision making
- Builds a legacy of meaning and impact
We’ve partnered with FreeWill, a free, easy, and trusted online estate planning tool that will guide you through the process of creating your will in 20 minutes or less. For more complex estates, you can use FreeWill to document your wishes before seeing an attorney, saving you time and money.
During the process, you can choose to include a planned gift to Davis Phinney Foundation in your will. Doing so costs nothing today but allows you to build a legacy that supports innovative quality-of-life research and our extensive educational programs, which provide essential information and practical tools to help people with Parkinson’s live well today.
Your support immediately impacts the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and financial well-being of people living with Parkinson’s. Together, we’re helping people live better and building healthier communities!
Also, while you’re thinking about unique ways to have a lasting impact, did you know that you can make a gift from your IRA if you’re 70.5 or older? Just like donating via cash or check, giving directly from your IRA is an immediate and impactful way to support the Davis Phinney Foundation — but in many cases, IRA giving is 100% tax-free!
