“FreeWill addresses a critical gap in legacy fundraising: how to actually get the documents completed.”


Dr. Russell James

Professor of Charitable Financial Giving

Texas Tech University


“I’ve always told donors that estate planning is easier done than said. FreeWill makes that possible and we’re excited to be offering it to our supporters and alumni.”


Harry Need

Director of Planned Giving

University of Alaska Foundation


"I think you're putting your finger on the pulse of what charitable organizations want and need to promote. I think it's very smart. It's exciting, and I'm excited to be in this space with you. You're creating a whole new class of philanthropists."


Brian Peterson

Director, Legacy and Gift Planning

"FreeWill is the missing piece of this puzzle. It starts a conversation and creates this almost audible buzz around the topic. Larger donors hear the buzz and want to be a part of it so they step forward and that's already proving to be so valuable. The excitement is real in our office, on a Director level."


Jeff McCormick

Director of Development and Planned Giving

Saint Ignatius High School
