Planned Giving Profiles
"When you’re an emerging professional, you have time and talent, but there’s a finite amount of treasure you can give. We can turn pennies into big dollars…We can make an even bigger impact by starting early. "
""I think United Way is uniquely positioned to bring the public sector, corporations and contributions from donors together to solve problems. Most of the things we’re trying to tackle are bigger than what anyone can do individually or any organization can do alone." "
"What’s attractive to me about United Way is the due diligence side of it, and being in touch with what’s going on in the community. That tells me that the legacy gift to United Way will be used in a good way for a long period of time. "
With thoughtful planning, you can make a difference for future generations. Planned Gifts support maintain our community’s safety net, and provide greater access to education and jobs for all of our neighbors.
