The Literacy Alliance and Fort Wayne Community Schools hold a joint graduation ceremony for those who passed the high school equivalency exam over the past year. This is a special ceremony, complete with cap and gowns, for adults from age 18 to 80. Featured speakers are graduates who share their personal stories. The public is invited.
Leave a Legacy is a national public awareness campaign sponsored by the Planned Giving Council to encourage donors to think beyond their lifespan when doing good works. In our community, the event includes Write-A-Will opportunities for individuals to work with a lawyer who will prepare a simple will.
There is no charge for the will if a charitable gift is made to a nonprofit organization. The gift would be paid to the organization upon the individual’s death. A simple will allows for the naming of a personal representative for the estate, distribution of assets and guardian appointments, if there are children under age 18.
