Designate a Charitable Gift in Your Will  


   Fewer than 50 percent of US Citizens have a last will and testament, and of those who do have a will, only about 8 percent include a charitable bequest as an element of their plans.

   You can make a difference in your community for years to come by simply remembering the Community Foundation of Morgan County, Inc. in your will.
