April brings longer days, more sunshine, and the promise that shirt-sleeve weather is near!  We yearn for blue skies, fresh spring air and recreation in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

April also brings tax season, when we pull together financial records, review earnings and expenses, get a better sense of how we are doing financially, and plan accordingly. Did you know that spring is also when many people create their first will or update an existing will? 

A will helps you provide gifts for loved ones after your lifetime. It ensures that your wishes are honored and that family and friends receive the money or property you intend for them.  Whether you have a lot or a little to share, every person has the right to direct how their nest egg is used after their life. (Those without a will have their property distributed according to a “one size fits all” state formula that doesn’t reflect personal circumstances.)

You can also leave gifts in your will for charities you hold dear and whose work you want to support in the future through a percentage of your estate or dollar amount. Here at Way to Grow, we hope you’ll keep us in mind! A gift in your will for Way to Grow helps ensure that children are born healthy, stay healthy and are prepared for school. What could be a more meaningful legacy than brighter futures for all children in our community?
