Legacy Giving

We here at Arctic Slope Community Foundation are all about working to help improve the quality of life among the People of the North Slope. We support entities on the Slope that help people and bring people together. 

 

We have had hard conversations about some of the issues that tear our people and families apart and one of those issues is intestacy, or dying without a will. It seems like we all know someone somewhere that is wrapped up in Probate Court. Siblings vs Siblings. Family vs Family. It’s sad. We here at ASCF believe our communities are stronger when we’re together in harmony. 

 

That is why we have looked into ways to help mitigate that problem by being proactive instead of reactive. By working with an online third party (Freewill.com)  we hope to help educate the People of the North Slope on standard estate documents and estate planning.

 

We understand it’s a difficult subject to talk about but by being proactive we can make life a little easier for our loved ones someday.
