Estate Planning

Giving to INSIGHT through estate planning is the best way to make a long lasting contribution to support our work.

The most common form of estate planning is designating all or part of your estate to INSIGHT in your will.  Whether a gift of cash or property, after your death the assets will be transferred to INSIGHT.  We will place the assets into our unrestricted investment account and spend the assets over a long period of time to support our important work.

Over the years INSIGHT has also been the beneficiary of charitable trusts, which produce income to support our work in perpetuity.

We recommend that you speak with your attorney and/or financial planner to evaluate the best method for you to support INSIGHT through estate planning.  If you would like a referral to professionals in the field who we have worked with, or if you have questions about estate planning in general, call Chris Butler at (401) 941-3322 or via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots.
