Your Legacy
Fred Kilguss
Have you considered including Bloom in your will or trust?

A properly executed Will or Living Trust is the best way to assure that your estate is distributed according to your wishes.  If you have a passion for Bloom’s ministries, consider continuing your support even after your death.

You can designate a percentage, a dollar amount, or that Bloom receives the residual amount of your estate.  A Will or Living Trust can also be used to set up life-income gifts that benefit heirs during their lifetimes, with the remaining principal to Bloom.

Visit a competent estate planning attorney to discuss the ways to designate the amount of your bequest.  Your attorney will need Bloom’s full legal name, address, and Federal Identification Number.  You might want to bring this along to the meeting.

"For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." --Romans 8: 38-39
