Being early retired in my mid 30's, I probably have a different will from most of you.* My will is not intended to for death by natural causes, but rather it's in place in case I die early.*
I'm sure it will change over time, but for now it says that my money will go in equal parts to each of my nuclear family members and "a charity contribution determined by beneficiaries".* Outside the will I wrote up some instructions for choosing a charity, basically saying that it should be something that reflects my values and past giving patterns.* *By keeping it open ended like that, I don't have to update the will every time my charity interests change.
If I were to get hit by a bus today, the money might be split among:
- Some small regional organizations that work to keep the government from charging entrance fees for hiking in our public lands
- San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness
- My alma mater
- ACLU and EFF
