Write-a-Will Week


A simple way to leave a legacy for trails in our community is to make a planned gift for the future.

During the week of October 21-25, Fort Wayne Trails will be participating in ” Write A Will Week”. During the event, local attorneys will donate their time to prepare no-cost, simple will documents for donors who include a planned gift to a non-profit. Barnes & Thornburg will assist Fort Wayne Trails donors this year.


Many of us have not yet considered planned giving, and this program provides the opportunity to have a simple will prepared. This will ensure that your wishes are honored and your love of trails will continue for generations to come. There is no minimum gift amount to participate.

Fort Wayne Trails will hold an information session on Thursday, September 19th, from 6-6:30 PM in the conference room of the Auer Center for Arts and Culture, 300 E. Main Street. Volunteer attorneys Travis Glassley and Charles Backs will provide information about simple wills, and will distribute information forms at that time.

Then, if you are interested, please call the office to schedule an appointment to meet with the attorneys on October 22. Travis Glassley will be available from 9 AM-12 PM, and Charles Backs will be available from 1:30-4:30 PM. These sessions will be held at the Fort Wayne Trails office. Please contact Angie Quinn at the office at 969-0079 or [email protected] to reserve your appointment.

After donors have met with the attorneys, they will visit the Barnes & Thornburg offices to review and sign the completed forms.

Great thanks to our program partner, Barnes & Thornburg LLP for participating this year!
