We want to help you distribute your legacy in the way that matters most to you.
At Kirk of the Hills, we offer complimentary legacy services that can help you do just that.
have you ever asked these questions:
What values would I like for the generations that follow me to continue?
What will happen to my children in the event something happens to me?
Do I want to continue giving to organizations I valued while I was alive?
Estate planning is the strategy for providing an efficient transfer of your wealth after you’re gone, but there’s a scriptural element to this that far outweighs economic considerations.
Through estate planning services, we want to provide personalized education to help you make these choices – helping you distribute your legacy in the way that matters most to you.
The Kirk Legacy Department
The Kirk Legacy Department exists to provide complimentary resources to its members. Think of this service as a free “second opinion” if you have already created an estate plan, or use it for the first time to find out how it can benefit you, your family, and your finances. Our team of professionals understands what legacy planning entails, the factors involved, and can customize a legacy plan that reflects your unique family characteristics. In addition, you can leave a gift to the organization(s) you most passionately support.
Gifts through your estate are sometimes the easiest ways to give, but also take planning to make sure the gifts are used for what you intend them for.
A misconception is that giving through your estate is only for the “wealthy.” The truth is, even people of modest means can make a difference through planning.
the kirk foundation
The Kirk Foundation was established to provide a way to enhance legacy giving and future giving from The Kirk to further God’s Kingdom.
The Kirk Foundation is not a mechanism that will pay for normal operating church expenses, but is used for new church plant projects (i.e. Kirk Crossing) or missions.
As an outreach to each member of The Kirk, we have established a relationship with Mark Loeber at The Advancement Group. Mark’s role is to help shepherd each family to better understand how to plan their future estates, while maximizing the impact and minimizing problems for surviving family members. He does not provide legal services, financial planning or asset management. However, he can recommend someone to provide those services if needed. Mark helps identify a best path forward for your estate and assets, which may or may not include legacy giving to The Kirk.
