“Bequeathing the Right Way – Sowing Good Things for Eternity” Event

On 2 March 2021, our virtual event “Bequeathing the right way – sowing good things for eternity” took place.
What needs to be considered when making and leaving a will? What needs to be taken into account if a sole heir or a coparcenary is to be considered and what happens if there are no natural heirs? Professor Dr. Stephan Scherer, lawyer specializing in inheritance and tax law at SZA Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz Rechtanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, answered these and other questions in a video presentation and pointed out challenges that come with making a will. The managing director of the University of Mannheim Foundation, Sabrina Scherbarth, then talked about the different types of charitable contributions that can be named after the donor and made for example to a foundation, and how to leave a lasting legacy.

We would like to thank the more than 270 people who showed their interest by participating in our virtual event. A special thanks also goes to Professor Dr. Scherer for his insightful and interesting presentation as well as for his support.
