Writing a ‘Legacy Letter’
with Jay Sherwin
This online workshop is designed to introduce the concept of “legacy letters” and to encourage you to craft your own legacy document. A legacy letter (also called an “ethical will”) is a written document that allows you to share your life lessons, express your values and transmit your blessings to future generations. The workshop includes discussion and brief writing exercises to help you examine your life history, explore key themes and capture important insights. It offers advice, encouragement and a model structure to help you organize your thoughts and create a legacy document that can be shared with family and friends.
In a long and diverse career, Jay Sherwin has practiced law, given away money for five different charitable foundations, worked as a philanthropy consultant and served as a hospital chaplain. In 2019, he created the Life Reflections Project to educate people about legacy letters, ethical wills and other legacy documents.
