Create Your Own Legacyundefined

Watch Denise L. McNabb, trust and estate planning attorney, present an introduction to planned giving. 


"I believe the humanities are about leaving an imprint after you're gone, through works of literature, ideas, and stories. A planned gift helps Humanities Kansas tell the stories of others to future Kansans. This legacy also becomes a fulfilling part of your personal story."
— Randy Austin
