Estate decisions require knowledge in many areas: accounting, finance, legal, insurance, taxes, investments and charitable planning. Experts will help you navigate the topics of advanced health care directives; charitable income & tax planning; being a trustee and executor; and more. The workshops take place over eight consecutive weeks.

Classes are offered to you as a public service. No charity will solicit you for a donation. No financial or insurance products will be sold. Your name will not be given to the speakers. All speakers are volunteers and recognized local experts in their field.

Underwritten by PBS Reno and the Community Foundation, the Free Family Estate Planning Series is provided at no charge through the sponsorship by these nonprofits.
