On average, a person works more than 40 years to accumulate assets and experiences but does not spend even a few hours to anticipate, much less plan, how they want their end-of life needs handled. The burden felt by loved ones as well as yourself can be eased through proper planning.

The three-part of the Foundation’s series to help you make and implement a plan for end-of-life issues concludes on Monday, April 20, with a presentation on planned giving. Rev. C.J. Taylor, president and CEO of Heartspring Methodist Foundation, will be the speaker

The.presentation will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 20, in the Fellers Room (S-312). RSVP is not necessary; childcare will not be provided.
