This is a growing desire, and very easy to do in our will. Choose a charity, and leave them some money or a percentage of your estate.

There are both financial and non-financial benefits of sorting your online will.

  • Financially, dying without your will in place is called dying intestate and can cost your family thousands after you have passed away.

  • Non-financially, having your online will in place can reduce family disagreements, ensure your assets go where you want them to, help plan your funeral, and allocate specific gifts.
