Join Us for a Leave 10 South Sound Happy Hour on October 18

Leave 10 South Sound is a regional movement encouraging individuals, regardless of personal wealth, to consider leaving 10% of their estate to charity.

You're Invited!

We invite you to join us at this community-building event for Nonprofits and Professional Advisors in honor of Estate Planning Awareness Week (NEPAW). We use the term Professional Advisors to include Estate Planning Attorneys, CPAs, Financial and Wealth Managers, and others who assist individuals with planned giving.

At the happy hour, you will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and get involved in this regional initiative of inspiring individuals to leave 10% of their estate to the causes they care most about across the South Sound. We will also be sharing resources, tools, and information about Leave 10. The Host Committee can't wait to see you there!
