Gift Planning & Trust Services

Were you aware that the Minnesota Conference, in cooperation with our attorneys, provides assistance with estate plans such as Wills, Living Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Healthcare Directives?   Establishing a plan can help you and your family have peace of mind for the future and ensure that your wishes regarding your property, your healthcare, and the care of your minor children will be followed in the event of your death. If you make a bequest to the Minnesota Conference that meets our giving policy, we won’t charge you any up-front legal fees, so it costs you nothing during your lifetime. Alternatively, if you have a will or trust established by your own attorney and you make a bequest to the Minnesota Conference that meets our giving policy, we will even cover part of the cost. To find out more about how you can take advantage of these important services, please contact the Gift Planning & Trust Services Department at (763) 424-8923 or email msims@mnsda.com. You can also find a lot of great information and resources on our website at www.mnsdagift.org.
