Emporia State University Foundation Gift Planning Services

A complimentary service to alumni and friends of Emporia State University

Your Story. Your Legacy.
“Did you realize that even if you haven’t taken the important first step of having a will or trust drafted, you already have an estate plan, because every state has a distribution plan that takes over when someone passes away without a plan. Most people find the state-provided estate plan very unsatisfactory and contrary to their wishes. Given a choice, we all prefer to exercise a measure of control over the final disposition of our property. Wills and trusts are the means to this end.”
