Planned Giving & pro Legacy Society

Charitable bequests are tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law and may help reduce your estate taxes. If you would like to make a bequest in your will or living trust, or plan a future gift through retirement plan assets or life insurance premiums, please contact us.

The pro Legacy Society recognizes the generosity of donors who have included pro in their estate plans. You are already eligible for the Legacy Society if you have made a deferred commitment in your will or other document. Simply notify us of your gift,
