BE PREPARED, the motto of the Boy Scouts of America. In an effort to help Scouting families and supporters prepare for the future, the Endowment Committee of the Sam Houston Area Council, Boy Scouts of America is offering a free Wills & Trusts Seminar. Come learn about the benefits of having a Will or Trust and how having one could support your loved ones or organizations close to your heart. This educational seminar is provided as a service to our Scouting Friends. We do not solicit any gifts during or after this seminar.
Everyone is welcome to attend and welcome to invite their friends and neighbors.
A Will is especially important if you want to decide where your belongings go. An up-to-date Will is an important document that everyone should have. Don’t go without having a Will. Without one, State law will determine what happens to your property. The state makes the choice. The state follows unalterable laws that will not consider your wishes and desires unless you have this important document. For the past three decades, 70% - 80% of Americans pass without having a will. Reasons why we avoid preparing the will. Reasons why you should consider a trust.
You can adjust your current Will with a Codicil. If you have intent to include Scouting in your will, you can become a member of the Heritage Society. Join the Scouting Heritage Society by completing a Letter of Intent.
Please remember the Sam Houston Area Council, BSA in your Will, Trust, or estate plans.
