Create a legacy to be proud of through a planned gift to the YWCA of Greater Portland.

Give through your will, trust, or income plan and ensure your values and beliefs create a living legacy.

Planned giving options can be tailored to meet both your interests and needs, and there are a range of effective, tax-efficient methods to consider. These include:

  • gifts you can make today (e.g. charitable lead trusts, endowments)
  • gifts that will pay you income (e.g. charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts)
  • gifts that will benefit the YWCA after your death (e.g. bequests)
    • A bequest will qualify your estate for a charitable deduction equal to the entire amount that you bequeath to YWCA of Greater Portland. Download our sample bequest letter for an example of how to include us in your will or estate plan.

Are you ready to create your legacy?

Please consult your professional adviser to learn more about these giving strategies and which one is right for you.
