Most people may not believe they have an estate or may underestimate the value of what they own. However, if you own anything at all, you have an estate. This includes cash, real estate, all personal property, investments, retirement plan assets, life insurance and other forms of assets. A well-drafted will allows you to ensure the assets you have accumulated over your lifetime are distributed according to your wishes. Remembering the Parks Foundation in your will or trust ensures a future for our parks, trails, and recreational programs.
