special will week feature: Kevin Klevorn
The Community Foundation supplements the work done by attorneys and other professional advisors when we help people formalize their charitable plans. Earlier this year, we heard from Kevin Klevorn, an attorney based in Boyne City, that a client intended to include the Charlevoix County Community Foundation in his estate plan. An experienced attorney and professional partner of the Community Foundation, Kevin thoughtfully confirmed that an unrestricted contribution is preferred. This allows for the client to work with us to provide guidance about what they hope to accomplish with their planned gift. If we are not already aware of the individual’s giving goals, a subsequent visit can provide the opportunity for the client to learn the full range of charitable options available to them. This strategy serves the client well – the guidance to the Community Foundation can be revised easily without amending legal documents in the future. Getting to know the individual also allows the Community Foundation to thank and recognize them as part of the Legacy Society.
As we celebrate “Will Week” – formally called National Estate Planning Awareness Week, we’re grateful for Kevin and the many other highly-qualified local and regional professional advisors who have helped their clients do this good work. The Community Foundation is committed to building a stronger community together, now and in the future. For Good. For Ever.
If we can help you leave a legacy, please be in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of our relationships with donors are initiated through an introduction from a professional advisor. We'd like to recognize and give special thanks to these advisors with whom the Community Foundation has worked closely on gifts to benefit the community.
