Can Donors Use an Online Will Planner to Draft a Will?

Have you experienced the passing of a loyal donor who forgot to leave you in his estate plan?

Sadly, it happens far too often. Some donors don’t realize they can make a difference with a bequest. Others don’t create a will at all — leaving their families with an emotional and financial mess.

Many fundraisers and advisors hold a deeply rooted belief that donors should always use an attorney to draft their wills.

Sound advice. But in the real world, this does not always play out.

Regardless of anyone’s recommendation, many will simply put their blinders on and neglect the task of planning their will. Others will attempt to draft their wills themselves.

So, instead of offering advice they won’t heed, why not provide donors with the tools to get started on (or complete) an estate plan, and recommend it be reviewed by an attorney?  That’s the power of an online will planner! This keeps your nonprofit top of mind when it’s time to think about bequests, and it also provides a valuable service — more than 60 percent of Americans lack a will.
