What Your Will Means To You
Besides providing for your loved ones, your will can be a tribute to the principles and values that you have lived.
Without a will, your estate will be distributed according to state laws, and unfortunately, these laws may differ from your preferences. Creating a will is the single most important step you can take to ensure that you final wishes will be carried out.
Having a will can bring peace of mind to you and certainty to your loved ones.
It may also be your most meaningful opportunity to establish a legacy for the organizations whose work is closest to your heart.
“Planned Parenthood is an intelligent organization with a unique mission. They do what they do very well, and I’m confident that the money would be used for only the most pressing needs and highest priorities.” – Member, Legacy Society
