Hey there! Welcome back! This is our 3rd and final blog post in our planned giving blog series. If you missed the first and second posts, make sure you check those out.  

We have covered a lot of really great information and options for planned giving. The final piece of information we wanted to leave you with is all about wills. 

Are you one of the many individuals who have put off creating a will because the process seems daunting or expensive? If so, you’re not alone. Estate planning is often perceived as a complex and costly endeavor, leading many to procrastinate on this essential task. However, thanks to innovative online platforms like Freewill.com, creating a will has never been easier or more accessible. 

Freewill.com is a user-friendly website that guides you through the process of drafting a legally binding will at no cost. Whether you’re a young professional just starting to build your assets or a retiree with extensive holdings, Freewill.com provides a convenient solution for ensuring your final wishes are documented and honored. You can also easily add your favorite charity, Habitat for Humanity of Horry County, as a beneficiary in your will.  

One of the most significant advantages of using Freewill.com is its simplicity. The platform streamlines the entire estate planning process, breaking it down into manageable steps that anyone can follow. You don’t need to be a legal expert to use Freewill.com; the platform’s intuitive interface guides you through each decision, from selecting beneficiaries to assigning guardians for minor children. 

Of course, while Freewill.com provides a convenient and cost-effective solution for many individuals, it’s essential to recognize its limitations. For complex estates involving significant assets or intricate family dynamics, consulting with a qualified estate planning attorney may be advisable to ensure all bases are covered. 

However you decide to go about planned giving, it can be an incredible tool for leaving a lasting legacy for the cause you care most about!  

If you have questions about including Habitat for Humanity of Horry County in your planned giving please reach out to our Organizational Advancement Director, Rachel Kennon via email at [email protected] or phone at 843-999-6471.
