3 reasons to make your will in August

News & Events

August is National Make-A-Will Month

  1. We all need a will, whether we are 19 or 90. August is National Make-a-Will Month. There’s no better time to write or update your legal will.
  2. Have peace of mind knowing that you’re making the process of dealing with your estate easier, in what is already a difficult time for your loved ones.
  3. Have a lasting impact on your community. A gift in your will to St. Mary’s Health System is one of the easiest ways to make what’s important to you part of your life’s story. Your gift will help St. Mary’s care for all members of our community with unique programs like those for our neighbors who may be homeless, facing food insecurity, experiencing a mental health crisis, our elderly, those who are uninsured or underinsured, and anyone else who walks in the door.

We invite you to take the time this month to think about the legacy you hope to leave to your family and your community.
