Every Step with Cedar Community Seminars

 

Leaving Your Legacy

Planning for your financial and family legacy can seem overwhelming, especially when talking about money which can sometimes be considered a taboo subject. Having a plan that is based on your values and goals for your family is incredibly important.

Join Elaine Shanebrook, retired attorney, as she presents a special six-part Every Step with Cedar Community series on estate planning entitled Leaving Your Legacy. This educational series will help you understand your options for estate planning, while also considering your values, your family and the legacy you would like to create for future generations.

Attendees will receive educational materials at each seminar, helping you to get organized, and to think about what is important to you when it comes to planning your legacy.*

Thursday, Feb. 20
10 a.m. Grand Hall - Cedar Community, Cedar Ridge Campus, 113 Cedar Ridge Drive, West Bend

  • tax consequences of your estate, and how charitable is your charity?

While most of us don’t have an estate that would be impacted by federal estate taxes, there are often capital gains and income tax consequences to some of our assets. Learn more about ways to help lessen the tax burden for your heirs, and how charitable giving can be a part of your plan to minimize those tax consequences. We will also discuss how to evaluate charitable organizations, to ensure that your gifts are valued, and how you can avoid charitable scams.

Thursday, March 19
10 a.m. Grand Hall - Cedar Community, Cedar Ridge Campus, 113 Cedar Ridge Drive, West Bend

  • ethical wills

We plan for what happens to our material assets in our estate plans, but what about the values, experiences, and life lessons you would like to leave behind? This session will introduce Ethical Wills; a document or letters to your loved ones created to leave your wealth of wisdom, stories, wishes, feelings, or other important information you want to last beyond your lifetime. This session will discuss what you might want to include in your Ethical Will, and provide templates and ideas to help get you started.

*All of the sessions will have a short presentation, and allow for group discussion and questions. None of the seminars will be a solicitation for financial gifts, nor will they offer legal or tax advice. They are informational and educational only.
