With proper estate planning, there are happy endings.
It seems like so much estate planning and elder law news is negative.
People are abused.
The elderly manipulated.
Nasty court battles ensuing.
According to the University of Kentucky Campus News article titled “UK Dentistry Alumnus Craig Adams Gives Back to Alma Mater,” there is a ray of hope in the midst of this gloom.
Craig Adams from Paducah, Kentucky, wanted to be dentist ever since his father made the suggestion while Craig was in high school.
Thanks to the help from a scholarship, he was able to attend the University of Kentucky for dentistry.
Now, a successful dentist and member of the community faculty of the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry and adjunct clinical faculty at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, Adams has decided to give back to his alma mater.
This gives him the ability to oversee the management of his gifts and to watch as current students benefit from his generosity.
His gift is the largest in the entire 54-year history of the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.
There is some happy estate planning news.
If you are interested in giving to a charity of your choice, you talk with your experienced estate planning about how to give both with warm and cold hands.
Remember: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When making your financial, tax and estate plans, do not go it alone. Be sure to engage competent professional counsel.
