Next Steps

Planning ahead

1. Make your plan today! You, your family, and your favorite charity will sleep better knowing that you have a plan in place based on your values, generosity, and forethought.

2. Contact SCI to let us know you are thinking about or have planned a legacy gift, so we can thank you.

3. Share your decision with your friends and family to promote your values and the causes you support.

4. Meet with your bank, financial advisor, and/or attorney to handle the paperwork.

5. Celebrate the positive difference you are making in the world!
