 Supporting legacy giving in Hampton Roads

You can't take it with you, according to the famous adage, but the majority of Americans are planning to do just that. That's because over half (55 percent) of all adult Americans do not have a will. And only a fraction of those that have a will make a bequest to charity. To many of your nonprofit's best friends and donors, this means they have no say over issues involving their assets after they die, and they will not receive the gratification of knowing that a portion of their assets will create a legacy with their favorite nonprofit(s). The Hampton Roads Gift Planning Council supports efforts to develop personalized plans for the distribution of estate assets.

 Model Standards for the Charitable Gift Planner

The council encourages responsible gift planning by urging the adoption of Standards of Practice by all individuals who work in the charitable gift planning process.
