Estate Planning
          Creating a definite plan for managing your property and distributing it to your heirs is a major component of an individual’s Christian legacy. This plan is not only concerned with what happens after your death, but also addresses management of your assets during your lifetime.

          The Foundation assists those in the Northwest with providing a Christian legacy through their estate plans, which often include assisting in the creation of the following documents:
  • Will
  • Living Trust
  • Power of Attorney
  • Advance Directive
          As you develop your estate plans, it may be comforting to know that the Northwest Baptist Foundation can also serve in the following capacities:
  • Personal Representative
  • Trustee
  • Agent under Power of Attorney
  • Agent under Advance Directive / Health Care Power of Attorney
