If you have already included the Franciscan Foundation Washington in your estate plans, please let us know by calling us or filling out our estate intention form. We would like to assist you in making certain your intentions will be carried out. If you have not written a will yet, regardless of your charitable intent, please consider this for it is a gift to your loved ones.
Some of the gift arrangements are revocable and others cannot be changed once established. Some work better with cash and others with appreciated assets. There are many variations, enough so that a giving plan can be tailored to your needs, desires and capabilities. Individual circumstances will vary - as with all tax and estate planning, please consult your attorney or estate specialist. We will be glad to answer questions and offer suggestions confidentially based on your personal circumstances. Please call us or e-mail us (see contact page). You may also use our information request form.
The News and Information button will allow you to read about news and information as it relates to planned giving as well as general information.
