How Do Sports Impact Our Youth?

Top 4 Reasons Youth Need Sports

  1. Improved Physical Health- build a foundation of good exercise habits for the future.
  2. Athletes Accelerate in Academics- being involved in sports can not only help cognitive performance but also lead to improved academic functioning.
  3. Mental Health Benefits- adolescents in sports, tend to understand themselves better and are best able to set limits and boundaries, when considering children’s overall social and emotional experience.
  4. Nothing worthwhile in life comes easily- Learning to work hard in sports and tolerate the natural ups and downs of athletics, can support the development grit.

Gifts By Wills and Living Trusts

Consider leaving a gift through your will or living trust. You retain full use of your gift assets during your life. When considering this option, we recommend that you consult with your CPA or attorney for bequest language and tax benefits.

  • General Bequest specifies that we will receive a designated sum. 
  • Percentage Bequest states that we will receive a certain predetermined percentage of your estate.
  • Contingent Bequest is contingent on some event. For example, you could make a primary bequest for a relative, with the contingency that if that relative is not living at the time of your death, the bequest will pass to LibFund. Or, in the case of your husband or wife, you could stipulate that if your spouse is not living at the time of your death, then the bequest will pass to The Libertore Fund for Children.
