National Estate Planning Awareness Week October 18-24

October 18-24th is National Estate Planning Awareness Week, and Feeding Pets of the Homeless wants to help you make the most of it! It’s a powerful way to protect your loved ones and support the causes that have been close to your heart.

If you’re wondering why you should be thinking about your will, we’re here to debunk the most common myths about making estate plans:

  1. It’s too early for me to think about my will! We hope you won’t need to use it for many years to come, but it is never too early to start planning ahead. Whether you are eighteen or eighty, having a will can give you peace of mind that your wishes and loved ones are taken care of, no matter what.
  2. I wrote my will a couple of years ago so I’m set. Have you acquired property? Do you have children? Life changes fast, so it is recommended that you update your will at least every five years.
  3. Estate planning is always so expensive. It can be, but there are free online resources that can guide you through the process of creating a legally valid will.  Of course, using an estate attorney is the best way to safeguard your wishes.

If you have any further questions, or if you want to learn more about how you can support Feeding Pets of the Homeless in your will, please feel free to reach out to President Genevieve Frederick at gf@petsofthehomeless.org.
