Define your purpose. Create your legacy.
Think of John F. Kennedy and the Peace Corps or Harvey Milk and LGBTQ civil rights movement. They died before their legacies were fulfilled, but they will be forever revered for their efforts.
Your legacy – it is how you will be remembered and the contributions you made to society while you were alive and through your estate after your death.

A personal process of defining a legacy that reflects your life's work, values and commitments. Not planning means letting someone else plan for you, and in estate planning, that means the government's plan. For the LGBTQ community, the government's plan is likely very different from what we would want, especially since the laws related to LGBTQ relationships and adoptions vary from state to state and may not be consistent to federal laws.
Our Fund's Basic Guide to Gift Planning for the LGBTQ Community in South Florida is designed for donors to stimulate their philanthropic thoughts in a organized manner as they begin their gift planning process.
