Write your legally valid will in 20 minutes, protect your loved ones, and help us keep building safe, affordable homes in Whatcom County for years to come. 

To help you get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online and can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own, or use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney.

About our partnership with FreeWill


FreeWill is a safe and secure way to write a legal will in 20 minutes or less — for free! For a simple estate, print your legal will to be signed and witnessed. If you have a more complex estate, the same tool will help you document your wishes to finalize with an attorney.


Leaving us in your will is a lasting way to help us keep building homes and hope into the future. While creating your will simply specify within the amount or percentage of your estate you wish to leave to Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County. 


If you have an IRA, 401(k), life-insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets.


If you’ve already left us in your will, visit us below to report your gift. We’d love to show our gratitude!
