Plan for the future –

Having a large impact doesn’t always have to cost you a lot of money. In fact, some giving options can cost your estate nothing at all! At Challenger Center, we encourage partners of all ages to consider planned gifts. These gifts can be made through bequests (estate planning), life insurance (list as a beneficiary), stock options, and much more. Some planned gifts can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you are considering a planned gift, we’d like to hear from you.
