Leave a Legacy Gift

Creating an estate plan to benefit Christian causes and care for surviving family is the ultimate in Christian Stewardship.

Often people procrastinate in planning their estate (legacy) after their earthly existence.  When they do, the probate court in most cases will execute a standard plan that “fits all.”  CICM can help you create a personal estate plan that leaves a lasting legacy for years to come.

A properly prepared estate plan is imperative for families with the following situations:

  • Minor children
  • Owns a home, cars, boats, (basically, any item that is titled or deeded)
  • Owns property in more than one state
  • Blended family from previous marriages
  • Disabled beneficiary
  • Child that is a spendthrift
