A Lasting Legacy

Address your family needs; plant the seeds to secure the future for your community through a gift to our endowment fund. Through United Way, your gift will help our most vulnerable populations of families to be economically stable, and their kids to get a strong start in school.

Your gift to United Way of Pierce County’s Endowment Fund, will grow over time and enable United Way to continue making measureable improvements in your community.

  • THE CHARITABLE GIVING ADVANTAGE

A simple bequest is the most flexible and effective way to leave a legacy, but you may also want to consider:

  • APPRECIATED SECURITES

If you purchased stock that has grown in value, you may donate it to a nonprofit and avoid the capital gains on that increased value.

  • IRA GIFTS

The IRS will allow you to make a donation from your IRA to a nonprofit of your choice, without paying a penalty.

  • GIFTS OF PROPERTY

If you have property you would like to donate to a nonprofit you can sell the property without paying capital gains and receive a tax deduction on the appraised value.

If you would like to discuss planned giving through United Way, please contact Stephen Deal, VP of Resource Development at (253) 597-8105 or stephend@uwpc.org.
