Having a will is an important planning step in dealing with your property and assets when you die. When you leave this world you leave behind all your worldly possessions. Those close to you, or the State are then forced to decide what to do with the leftover assets. Without a valid will to direct them, your wishes, even if known, can go unheeded.
Establishing a will relieves much of the family stress of dealing with your property and assets. It also allows you to have more control over what happens to your estate. The will is your last message to the living world and often creates peace-of-mind knowing that your plans are in order should something sudden happen.
After providing for your loved ones you can make a lasting positive impact on the community you lived in by naming the United Way of Kent County as a recipient of a final gift. The United Way of Kent County will allocate your gift to meaningful charitable and non-profit organizations within Kent County.
Adding the United Way of Kent County can be a simple as adding a codicil to your original will, or part of an overall Estate Plan when first writing or updating your will. Contact your Attorney to update or create a new will and mention that you would like to leave something to the United Way of Kent County.
