“We’ve been donating to The Bushnell for years. We do it because it’s good for the city. We do it because we want other people to enjoy it too.”
- Edie Murphy, 2004

Did you know…
...that only half of adults age 55 or over in the United States have a will? By writing a will, you choose just how you want your assets distributed in the future and take care of the family and charities you love, which could result in estate tax savings for your heirs (they’ll love you even more for that!).
