This Memorial Day South Floridians and citizens all across the nation took some time to remember the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Cemeteries and memorials were visited to honor those who have been wounded or died while serving our country.

Other people give back in another meaningful way. They make gift bequests to veteran and military charitable organizations. For example, donors might gift a certain percentage of their estate to these foundations. Proceeds guarantee continued growth and development of future educational programs and provide benefits for our soldiers. However, it is a good idea to have your South Florida attorney assist you during this process.

Such a bequest can provide estate tax benefits. If you are considering this option, there is a variety of valuable gifting vehicles your South Florida attorney can apprise you of including the use of specialized trusts such as Lead trusts, Charitable trusts, and Remainder trusts to suit your specific agenda.

Creating your legacy through planned giving is an admirable act that demonstrates your core, personal values and character. By making your mark on humanity, why not also benefit your estate?

If you have family, friends or even a charitable intent, the absence of an estate plan is inexcusable.
