New Year’s Resolutions
Did your New Year’s Resolution include reviewing your estate plans?
Now is a good time to check the beneficiary designations on your life insurance policies and retirement accounts.  Family situations to change and it is easy to forget about the corresponding revisions to your policies and accounts.

And, if you’re considering including support for your charitable interests in your estate plans, we can provide information on tax-smart ways to structure gifts from qualified retirement accounts, with life insurance, or by bequest.
Unrestricted funds enable us to quickly respond to the immediate needs of the community and support future focused projects that will help our community thrive. 

In 2020 alone, the Foundation was able to grant over $2.25 million to our community because of the generosity of our donors. Please know that your contribution helps the Foundation meet our community's ever-changing needs.
