Charitable giving is often overlooked by the average Joe and Josephine when preparing their Last Will and Testaments. However it is wonderful, in my probate practice, to see how even a small amount of giving can have a big impact. Clients of moderate means have made donations to non-profits that range from helping animals, the blind, arts organizations, libraries, and others. When you are reviewing your estate documents (every two years!) consider giving one percent outside the family and make an impact on the lives of others.
