Everyone needs to have a plan. 

Now is the time to put your new year’s resolutions into action. Make or review your will and plans. Maybe your family has experienced a life changing event that will impact your plans, such as a birth, a death, a divorce, retirement or business changes. These changes all need to be considered as decisions are made. Let United Way of Greater Atlanta help.

You can also help our Greater Atlanta community and sustain your impact by including a gift in your will to United Way. This allows you to further our mission without drawing on your current resources. Making or updating your will and including a gift to United Way of Greater Atlanta is easier than you might imagine. It can be as simple as including a sentence in your will or living trust naming United Way with an amount or percentage. You might also schedule time with an estate planning attorney or use FreeWill.  

We’ve partnered with FreeWill to give you a free, intuitive way to write your will today. Click here to start writing your will at no cost to you. This tool is free to you — whether you choose to include a gift to United Way of Greater Atlanta or not — and can be used to create your full legal will, for free, or begin your plans before seeing an attorney. Remember, a will is not for us but for the ones we love.

For more information on including United Way in your will, request your free copy of Leaving Your Legacy: A Guide to Planning Your Will and Trust. Please contact: Eve Powell at 404-527-7215 or epowell@unitedwayatlanta.org.
