May the Work of Your Heart Be Lasting: Intentional Giving & Ethical Wills (Third Party Event)

Thursday, October 26, 2017, 12:00pm – 2:00pm EDT


This workshop will discuss the alignment of personal passions and beliefs and philanthropic giving, and explore the process for creating ethical wills or legacy letters.  An ethical will is a centuries-old Jewish custom of formally sharing your values, blessings, life lessons, hopes, and dreams with your family, friends, and community. Learn how the writing of an ethical will can provide insight into what we want to achieve with our philanthropy, discuss issues related to creating and sharing ethical wills, and take part in structured reflection that can help us to engage in this meaningful practice.
