August is Make-A-Will Month
August is National Make-A-Will Month, and we encourage you to set aside time to write your legal will. Everyone needs a will, whether they’re 18 or 80, and it goes well beyond a plan for your assets. Your will can protect your loved ones – humans and pets alike – and help build the community you love as well.Read News
Lois Ekstrand’s White Lake Legacy
Lois Ekstrand was a friendly fixture in the White Lake community where she summered at her vacation home on Old Channel Trail. She was always out on the town, making friends at festivals and weekend events. When Lois passed away in July of 2021, we learned she had planned an amazing gift to the community she loved: a bequest of $1.86 million to the Community Foundation. The Lois Ekstrand Fund will double the annual grant-making power of the White Lake Community Fund, and we will fondly remember Lois Ekstrand and her love for the community, forever.Read Story
