Turning Your Estate Plan Into a Family Legacy
For some, the most important part of estate planning is keeping your assets out of probate court so that your beneficiaries don’t have to wait to get their inheritance (not to mention having the courts take their share). However, when you plan for the future of your estate, you may also decide that you want to create a legacy to leave behind for future generations. Here are a couple of ways to make that happen.
- Leave a donation to a favorite charity – One great way to leave a legacy for your family is to help out people in need. This shows your family what is important to you and provides an example of using wealth for philanthropy rather than solely selfish gain.
- Create new family heirlooms – Bequeath some of your most prized possessions to specific family members and provide a written or recorded video reason that you feel the item should become a family heirloom. Generations from now, your family may still be passing on those items along with your story to their children.
