Memorandum of Charitable Intent (MOCI)

A Memorandum of Charitable Intent (MOCI) adds flexibility to your estate plan so you can easily adjust your giving as your charitable interests change over the years.

A MOCI is a simple document that we help you create. It describes how you wish us to distribute charitable gifts from your will, living trust, beneficiary designation, or other charitable planned gift. You can direct your estate gift to create a new endowed fund, be added to an existing endowed fund, or to be distributed directly to a nonprofit organization of your choice. Your MOCI is easy to update anytime, without having to engage your lawyer.
