How to make a statement that will have an impact forever – Planned Giving!
Chances are that you are reading this newsletter because you already know something of the work WWIN performs. You know that the nonprofit organization serves hundreds of women each year that live below the poverty line in our state (of which there are more than an astonishing 280,000). You know that most of these women get back on the road through improving their health and education, and are able to pay your gift forward to their families and communities.
Maybe you have made a donation or attended one of WWIN’s Spring fundraising events these past 18 years. Or perhaps you have even included WWIN in your Will or Trust. If you did – thank you! Your event donation helps us provide grants to low income women this next year and a Planned Giving Gift ensures that your support of WWIN will continue into the future – and really is a simple thing to set up.
The stories of hope and success fuel our energy to continue the work and to expand the number of women we serve each year. One simple way you can expand WWIN’s impact is by making a gift in your Will or Trust. Remembering WWIN in your estate planning, at whatever level is appropriate for you, leaves a lasting legacy. It says something about what was important to you in your life.
Meeting with a qualified estate planning attorney is essential to determining what gift is most appropriate for you and ensuring that the charitable language is properly drafted. Once you have included WWIN in your plan, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your “last testament” to your friends and family included an organization you believed in.
This is precisely why I took the step of creating a gift to WWIN in my estate plan. Regardless of the gifts I make to WWIN each year, I also have the joy of knowing that after I’m gone my gift will go on to personally improve the quality of life for women in my own community.
