Legacy Giving is the promise of future support to United Way through a gift of stock, bequest, life insurance policy, or a trust. Donors can contribute to United Way’s Endowment Fund, which will enable us to create an ever increasing impact in our community. All donors who commit to a planned gift will be included as members of the Legacy Giving Society.
WHAT DOES A LEGACY GIFT MEAN?
Herschel V. Jenkins left a legacy of giving. His commitment to our community was evidenced in 1955 when he set aside $500,000 in a trust fund for United Way of the Coastal Empire. His bequest allows almost all of the annual fundraising to directly help people in need.
Our community owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to Herschel V. Jenkins because of his philanthropic foresight. We invite you to contribute to that same legacy.
