What is an Ethical Will?

An Ethical Will is a resource for describing and sharing your personal legacy. It provides a way to convey spiritual assets, rather than material assets like money or property, including: life lessons, important values, family history, blessings, and hopes for the future. Unlike wills that govern material assets and property, Ethical Wills are not enforceable by law.

An ancient tool made modern, Ethical Wills began as letters written by parents to children conveyed after death. Now, they often address a wider circle of friends and family and are increasingly shared during a writer’s lifetime. Some are created specifically for grandchildren.
