Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way

Did you know that one sentence in your will can help prevent war?

Leaving a legacy for peace in our wills is one of the most important ways that we can continue our commitment to nonviolence beyond our own lifetimes. A will expresses our partnership with the peacemakers of the future. 

In our wills, we can leave a fixed amount for the Peace Fellowship…or a percentage…or a tithe of our assets---or even the remainder or “residual amount” after other provisions are honored.

We can also choose to leave a gift to the Peace Fellowship of stock, bonds, insurance, bank or retirement or investment accounts, real estate or other personal belongings.

Whether you use an attorney, a wills software kit or a flat-fee legal service, remember to...

  • Make sure that your will meets the rules for your particular state. State laws vary.
  • Make sure that your will takes into account estate planning to reduce fees and taxes.

 If you already have a will, you can usually add a provision, called a codicil, for a modest cost.

In a will, the Peace Fellowship may be identified as “The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship, a not-for-profit corporation registered in the state of New York.” Consult your attorney.
