What is an Ethical Will?

Ethical wills are a way to share your love with family and close friends. Think of an ethical will as a heartfelt letter describing what truly matters most in your life. An ethical will passes on life lessons, values, joys, prayers, hopes, and dreams for present and future generations.

Unlike a Last Will and Testament or a Living Will, an ethical will is NOT a legal document. An ethical will describes your treasures of the heart, not your treasures. !

Why should you write your ethical will?

Quite simply, there is no one else like YOU! You have incredible wisdom and experience to share—no matter what your age or background. Your ethical will has the potential to affect multiple generations perhaps even hundreds of years from now. Therefore, an ethical will is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your children and grandchildren.

Once you complete your free ethical will using our tool below, it is important to put your ethical will in a safe place—someplace where those you love will be sure to find it someday (perhaps with your Last Will and Testament). You may also want to share your ethical will with your family and friends at the time you write it. An ethical will certainly can help in communicating how you really feel and it may be a great conversation starter.
