Autumn Series 2019 Part 2 – Passing Recovery to the Next Generation – Addiction Trust Planning and Planned Giving
Presenters: John Magnuson, Executive Director, MARRCH; Rachel Schromen, JD, Schromen Law, LLC
Original Presentation: November 2019
In Partnership with: Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health (MARRCH).
Addiction and Mental Health Trusts do more than protect and pass on assets. Planning of this nature can encompass and capture the recovery values and practices of a family, and function to pass them on to the next generation. So too is the power and possibility of partnering with non-profits in the addiction space who are shaping a better approach to addiction care and community connection. This session will introduce and discuss the important steps to take in planning for the next generation… and the power and possibility of what grateful giving means for both.
