ESTATE GIFT HELPS ARIZONA’S VISUALLY IMPAIRED COMMUNITY
HEAR LOCAL NEWS AND INFORMATION
The estate of Maurice B. and Marion O. Westover recently bestowed a $5,000 gift to Sun Sounds of Arizona, helping to ensure that service continues to the state’s visually impaired and print-disabled population.
Sun Sounds Director Bill Pasco said “Estate gifts like the Westover’s go a long way in helping us provide needed service to a population in our state that sometimes bears the brunt of economic difficulties. In fact, just today Governor Brewer approved $300 million in cuts to education and social services, and there is talk that more cuts are imminent. The Westover Trust gift comes at a critical time for community benefit services like Sun Sounds.”
An estate gift or trust is also a great way to leave your personal legacy. If you fail to plan your estate then state law will dictate your property distribution, perhaps in ways that do not reflect your wishes. According to Leave A Legacy Arizona, “Nearly 70% of Arizonans give to charities in their lifetime. But less than 10% include charities in their estate plans.”
Sun Sounds provides access to news and information, but we are not tax attorneys! Please consult yours with questions about naming Sun Sounds in your estate plans.
