The  Positive Power of a Will

Much of our lives are spent raising families, building careers, and preparing for retirement. We all want to make a difference in the
world and be remembered fondly. Are you building a legacy that aligns with what you value you most?

A legacy of provision. Research indicates that nearly half of all New Zealander's do not have a will, and many of those that do it may not be up to date. An up-to-date estate plan not only prepares for good use of your resources, it also establishes a plan to ensure that your loved ones are provided for and that any minor children will be raised by the guardian of your choosing. Your legacy can provide protection, provision, and peace.

A legacy of love. Many people are incorporating the idea of an "ethical will" into their estate planning. An ethical will passes along
the riches of the heart. Personal letters, special family stories, affirmation of love, and your own life stories make an ethical will a
rich and enduring gift.

A legacy of generosity. What causes and organizations have you felt connected to throughout your life? Would you consider leaving
them a gift in your will? Planning a legacy gift to a cause you feel passionate about is a powerful way to communicate what matters
to you. You might even inspire loved ones to think about how they may practice generosity in their own lives too.
