Make A Will Project Comes Back to Fairview
Registration Date - April 15
By E. Harris | April 5, 2012
For a third year in a row, Fairview members will have the opportunity to participate in the “Make A Will Project,” which will allow them to have free wills and other estate planning documents drafted for free by a licensed attorney. It is reported that 80 to 90 percent of African Americans do not “go the extra mile” to protect their wealth by making a simple will. The Make A Will Project seeks to fill this gap.
In connection with the Make A Will Day Program on April 21, 2012, an additional service will be offered to those who attend the Program. For those who are interested, private financial consultations will be offered to those who are interested in increasing returns on assets that they own and adding assets that they currently don’t have. The consultations will be conducted by a Financial Management Team (“FMT”) that will be comprised of experienced professionals with expertise in the area of finance. Other fields of practice represented on the FMT include the fields of Law, Insurance, Accounting and Securities. The consultations will be offered free of charge.
In order to participate in the program, you must secure a packet from your church coordinator, Erick Harris, on April 15, 2012 after the regular morning worship service. Advance reservations for packets will not be taken and only one packet per household is allowed. Space is extremely limited; therefore members will be served on a first come, first serve basis. Those requesting a packet should be willing to provide information regarding their financial status and other pertinent information to generate a will and other estate and financial planning documents as needed. In addition, those requesting a packet should be available on April 21, 2012.
