Since 1897, The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi has supported the academic and professional growth of scholars in various ways. There are many benefits to being a member of the Phi Kappa Phi community, and the Society is constantly searching for new ways to support our membership. Today, we’re sharing a new, unique resource to support our entire community in completing an essential life task.

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi has partnered with FreeWill: a free online estate planning tool. FreeWill’s self-guided tool walks you through writing your will online in about 20 minutes, streamlining the process of making your wishes known. Whether you’re 18 or 88, everyone should have an estate plan.

One concrete way to show up for the people and causes you love is to make a plan for them in your will. If you don’t have an up-to-date estate plan, you can use FreeWill’s tool to create yours, and even include an optional legacy gift to Phi Kappa Phi in the process. By including our Society in your estate plan, you can pay it forward to the next generation of Phi Kappa Phi members!

Why should I make a will?

No matter your age or circumstances, everyone needs a legal will as a way to plan for the future, as well as to make a lasting commitment to the people and causes that matter most. Making a will is a vital part of protecting your loved ones and taking responsibility for your assets. Regardless of your decision to make a planned gift in your will, FreeWill is always 100% free to use.

Why use FreeWill’s estate planning tool?

Making a will doesn’t have to be complicated or scary, but many people avoid the task because they assume it will be. But FreeWill’s will-writing tool makes the process easy, intuitive, and fast: in less than 20 minutes, you can make a will and make a plan for the future. You won’t need to submit any sensitive personal information — no social security number necessary, for example — and you’ll finish with a PDF of your will that after signing it in accordance with the included instructions is legally valid in all 50 states and D.C.

Why should I create a bequest to Phi Kappa Phi?

Creating a legacy with Phi Kappa Phi is the most powerful way to support our Society for generations to come. It represents your lasting commitment to recognizing academic excellence while costing you nothing today.

If an immediate cash gift isn’t right for you, or if you want a more concrete, long-term investment in the next generation of Phi Kappa Phi, consider a legacy gift in your will!
