What is Legacy Giving?


It means a long-term commitment to good stewardship between you and United Way.


It means fulfilling the needs of those who are looking to improve their lives.


It means a sense of being an integral part of our identity as a community.


It means this gift multiplies, affecting change over lifetimes.

Why plan for Legacy Giving?

Legacy Giving is the promise of future support to United Way through a bequest of property, stock, life insurance benefit, 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.

Your gift is more valuable than the amount.

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.
