Write Your Ethical Will

How do you want to be remembered? What would you like to tell your descendents about what has been important to you? What do you wish you had from loved ones who are gone?

An ethical will or legacy letter is neither a legal nor a financial document, but an important part of your estate planning. Sharing your values in this way creates a priceless memento of you, to share now or later.

An ethical will is one way to find peace of mind

by leaving a piece of your mind for your loved ones.

The workshop on Ethical Wills: Legacy Letters to Your Family guides you to write your own ethical will. Following a step-by-step approach, these documents may contain your personal values, life lessons and achievements, advice for the next generations, and hopes for the future.

During this 4-week workshop, we will use writing exercises and memory prompts to help you select what has been important in your life and preserve it for the future.

By the end of this workshop, you will have an ethical will or legacy letter written on archival paper that will endure for generations.
