Estate Planning Seminar: Family & Philanthropy

Title Page of Presentation
University of Illinois Foundation

You don't need to be a millionaire to make a million dollar difference in your community.

Whatever your stage in life, it is a good idea to think about and plan for how your affairs will be handled.  A few simple steps today can give you peace of mind tomorrow by ensuring that you and your loved ones are well protected.  Your estate plan can also be used to support charitable causes that matter most to you and your community.
