An Example of How It Works

Young family with kidsMeet Martha and Tom. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to Barnard. As the family grew to include three children, Martha and Tom decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.

They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that Barnard received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Martha and Tom now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
