Ellen G. White Estate
The Ellen G. White Estate, Incorporated, or simply the (Ellen) White Estate, is organization created in 1933 by the five trustees named in Ellen G. White's last will and testament to act as the custodian of her writings, which are of importance to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Based at the General Conference in Silver Spring, Maryland, with which it works closely, the White Estate has branch offices and research centers at Adventist universities and colleges around the world.
The mission of the White Estate is to circulate Ellen White's writings, translate them, and provide resources for helping to better understand her life and ministry. At the Toronto General Conference Session in 2000, the world church expanded the mission of the organization to include a responsibility for promoting Adventist history for the entire denomination.
