Leave a Lasting Legacy
Consider joining the growing community of people who want IMS to thrive into the future. Many of our supporters leave a gift to IMS in their will or estate plan so they can do even more to ensure that the Buddha’s teachings of wisdom and compassion will be taught and practiced at our centers for generations to come. You can, too. Giving a percentage of your estate helps IMS continue to serve as a refuge for all who seek freedom of mind and heart.
Leaving a legacy gift is easy
Everyone needs a will, and everyone can make a legacy gift — you don’t need to be wealthy. To include us in your estate plan, simply name IMS as a beneficiary:
- in your will or living trust –see info & sample language
- in your retirement plan or bank account –see info & sample language
- in your life insurance policy
Create your free will
If you are ready to create your will, you can use ourfree online will-writing tool. IMS has partnered with FreeWill to offer this service which allows you to write a legally binding will in 20 minutes or less, for free. There is no obligation to include IMS in your plans, though we hope you will consider doing so.
If you have more complex estate plans, you can use FreeWill to create a set of documented wishes to share with your attorney.
