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.
