A will is a legal document prepared by an attorney that allows you to determine to whom, how, and when your property is distributed.
Some 70% of us do not have wills which means after a lifetime of hard work and saving, we leave the final distribution of our property up to state laws -- which may not reflect our wishes and values.
Beyond expressing your values by providing for the people and causes that are important to you, a will can take into account federal and state gift and estate tax consequences which may enable you to provide more for loved ones and charities.
Through your will, you may leave a sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or the balance or residue of your estate to Catholic Memorial as your enduring legacy. A gift made through a will is also called a bequest.
Members of the Catholic Memorial family who have included the school in their plans are recognized as members of the Cornerstone Society.
