September is Wills Month. Sorting out your will is a task that is all too easy to put off, but things could get messy for those you leave behind if you die without a valid, up-to-date will. Having a will gives you peace of mind that you have made the best provision possible for the people and causes you care about, making it easier on your family and friends if the worst should happen. Northland Community Foundation supports local charities and causes that could be important to you.
When making a will many people want to give something back to their community, or leave a bequest to their favorite charitable cause. It’s a common misconception that only wealthy people leave money to charity when they pass away. Gifts in wills, or bequests, are not just made by the rich and famous. The reality is most bequests are made by ordinary, hard working people who want to make a positive difference in their community and to other people lives. You may consider leaving a percentage of your estate or a specified sum in your will to the Northland Community Foundation, knowing it will keep on giving back to our community forever. Your gift can be added to the Northland Fund, or one of our already established funds.
