Legacy Circle Legal Services
For those with a projected commitment of $10,000 or more, we have arranged for pro bono legal services to be available to you through our partnership with the law firm of Kintz Law PLLC. Donors making a projected gift of $10,000 or more will receive legal services on a pro bono basis for the preparation of a simple amendment or codicil.
Donors needing more complex estate planning services in order to make the bequest, or simply require a review of an existing bequest to the Tahoe Fund, will be provided with one hour of pro bono legal services directly relating to the Tahoe Fund bequest and discounted legal services in accordance with the following schedule:
- For gifts of $10,000 – $100,000 Next 2 hours discounted
- For gifts of $100,001 – $500,000. Next 3 hours discounted
