States across the country are experiencing an unprecedented transfer of wealth as estates change hands from one generation to the next. By 2025 in Kansas alone the transfer of wealth is estimated to be $67 billion, and will increase to $1.16 trillion by 2070.

Many people designate their entire estate to their children. As more people leave the communities where they were raised, much of the inherited wealth leaves, too. The Keep 5 in Kansas campaign aims to capture 5% of the estate wealth, which could give back $58 billion to Kansas communities over the next 50 years.
