Trust Services & Planned Giving

Estate planning is an important part of stewardship.  It provides an opportunity for you to make thoughtful decisions about how your assets will be disbursed at your death, who will administer your estate, who will take care of your minor children or disabled family members and gives you an opportunity to benefit your church.  To make decisions and have documents already in place before they are needed is a method to make your wishes known.

Do not assume that the state’s distribution for an individual who dies without a formal Will is the plan that you might need.  There are many things to consider.

We welcome the opportunity to help you prepare a Family Information Form.  Our confidential interview is the initial step prior to the attorney interview in the document preparation process.

Trust Services personnel have received specific education and are certified by the North American Division Planned Giving and Trust Services Certification and Accreditation Committee.  We are required to complete yearly continuing education courses to maintain our certification.  The department office practices and records are regularly audited by the Columbia Union General Conference Auditing Service.
