The Reverend Chase S. Hunt is the Seminary's director of planned giving. 

I imagine you are familiar with statistics about the number of people in our country who have not made wills. Studies from reputable sources like the National Committee on Planned Giving consistently reveal that less than half of the U.S. population have wills, and one recently published article puts that figure at 70 percent! Remarkable when you consider that the benefits of having a will include: the opportunity to direct where what you have accumulated during your lifetime will go rather than to have the state of your residence decide; the opportunity to name a guardian for your minor children and someone to manage your financial affairs; and the opportunity to make provisions for charitable causes that are dear to your heart.

With regard to that last item, a study has concluded that while more than 70 percent of Americans make charitable gifts each year, only eight percent provide for charities through their wills or estate plans. That’s a remarkably wide gap that gets my attention and that I call to yours. In the process, I would encourage you to consider the consistency of providing for a charitable cause or institution that you have found worthy of support during your lifetime through a will provision that will bear witness to that cause after you’re gone. I urge you to address the matter of a will and to have one prepared if you have not already done so. And I ask you to consider provision for Princeton Seminary in the process. 

The tragic events of September 11 have brought this matter to our attention in dramatic fashion. A majority of those who were lost on that sad day died without wills, and many of them were young parents who left a spouse and children without the benefit of that protection. This has prompted many who were without wills to have them drawn.

An interesting by-product has been the opportunity it has given husbands and wives, children, and other family members to gather to discuss important matters they have seldom, if ever, considered together. Things like how property is to be divided, who would like to have particular items, what personal preferences are with regard to memorial services and burial, and what causes to remember. Those who have had such conversations report experiencing a spiritual dimension they had not anticipated, and a sense of confidence, calm, peace—and even joy—along with a closeness as a family that they had not experienced before. There are many important reasons to have a will drawn, even if you feel that your circumstances are modest and may not require one. But I submit to you that this may be the most compelling reason of all to think about your future. I encourage you to gather with your family and talk together about these important questions. And I invite you to let me know if I can be of help.
