Check Out This Potential Scenario

Young family with kidsWhen Tom and Martha got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved QU and decided to include a bequest of $75,000 to us in their will.

As Tom and Martha's family grew to include three children, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security. When Tom and Martha prepared to write their will, they knew they wanted to leave a gift to the University they loved and ensure their children's future financial security. They used FreeWill to write their will and chose to leave a percentage of their estate to QU. If they wanted to review their plans with an attorney, they could also print out FreeWill’s forms and go over them together. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing when they die, their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
