There is a massive transfer of wealth occurring, some $35 trillion over the next 20 years, as the baby boomer generation passes on. Is there a way that more of this wealth can be directed to charitable causes and nonprofit organizations? Well, a company by the name of FreeWill believes that there is, and has created an easy and simple process that helps make it possible. And it’s a pleasure to have with us tonight the Co-founder and Co-CEO of FreeWill, Patrick Schmitt.

One of the most thoughtful places I’ve been to do a Better Than Most segment has been New Story, which is headquartered out in San Francisco.
