Free Charitable Gift & Estate Planning

Between 2020 and 2064, nearly $30 billion dollars will transfer from one generation to the next in the 26 counties of NW Kansas. The opportunity to capture a portion of that
wealth is a remarkable one, and the time is now.

Most intergenerational wealth transfer will go to heirs, many or most of whom will take their inheritance with them to a home outside of NW Kansas. If, as a generation, 95% of Baby Boomer estates in NW Kansas went to children or family, heirs would be well cared for. If the remaining 5% went to our local communities, the future for NW Kansas would be forever changed.

NW Kansas Gives represents an effort to educate NW Kansas residents and encourage thoughtful, planned charitable gifts as a part of overall estate planning.

Donors who wish to make a charitable gift in their estate can meet with estate planning attorney John Griffin to help design a plan that includes a charitable gift. Through a series of appointments, John assists NW Kansas residents by developing an outline for a new or revised estate plan that includes a charitable gift. There is no charge to the participant for this service. Once an outline is created, participants work with their existing attorney (or an attorney can be recommended) to complete the documents. The Dane G. Hansen Foundation is underwriting this service. To learn more, contact your local community foundation.
