A Bequest to Further Good Work
Nancy and David were dedicated church members. Over the years, they had seen many individuals helped by the good work of Christian Financial Resources. They wanted to create a legacy to provide future resources to continue its mission.
Dave: The work of CFR was important to us and we provided support with current gifts, but wanted to do more. We received their newsletter and noted that we could make a gift from our estate. We saw a picture of smiling people just like us and we wanted to be part of that group.
Nancy: We met with our lawyer to revise our wills and we each included a provision for a bequest. Our lawyer put language in the will that allows a percentage of our estate to go to our local church and CFR. This was easy to arrange and permits us to still use our assets during our lives if we need them.
We will continue to make gifts during our lives, but it feels good to know that our support will help in the future.
