Estate Plans & Giving
Estate plans, like a will or trust, are valuable tools to make a smooth transfer of assets to heirs and ministries upon death. Do you have a plan? If yes, now is an opportune time to review and make changes. Have any additions taken place in your life through birth, adoptions or marriage? Have you experienced any losses due to death, divorce, mental incapacities, a handicap, serious injury or health problems? These are important matters to consider when reviewing your estate plan.
A bequest is property given by a will or trust to a person, or a charitable bequest to a nonprofit organization, trust or foundation. Bequests through estate plans are important gifts that support and strengthen ministries that touch people’s lives. Baptist Homes has the expertise to make sure a donor’s charitable bequests make the biggest impact possible. BHHM will work with a donor’s attorney and financial planner to provide specific language to include in one’s estate documents to ensure that the bequest is honored.
If you would like more information about wills, estate planning or planned gifts, please contact a Baptist Homes advancement team member.

A. Every adult should have an estate and financial plan — whether the estate is large or small. An estate plan is not just for the wealthy, nor does estate planning only refer to what happens following your death. A sound estate and financial plan will help you achieve your present and future goals for good Christian stewardship.
A. A will is the first and most important step in an estate plan, but it is not the only step. A will states what is to happen to your probate estate after your death. There are also other arrangements that can be used to supplement your will.
A. An estate plan can include trusts, life insurance and other financial agreements. Financial and health care power of attorneys should be a part of everyone’s planning. Planned charitable gifts can also be part of an estate plan, especially when they benefit you, your family and charitable organizations that exemplify your Christian beliefs.
