Planned Giving

Planned Giving Program

Your legacy, gifts will help support the programs of Women That Give through planned giving. A planned gift is your opportunity to leave a legacy of lasting impact to help rebuild the lives of the marginalized women and disadvantaged members in our communities.

A number of ways you can give meaningful gifts to Women That Give.

Gift in Will:

Make Women That Give a beneficiary in your will and let your legacy live on for generations. A tax receipt will be issued for the full amount of your donation and may offset capital gains or other taxes payable to lessen the financial cost on your estate.

  • You can donate a specific dollar amount
  • Residual bequest ‒ a share of the remainder of your estate after all other needs are met.

Gift of Securities: 

Support our programs by donating publicly traded securities, stocks, and mutual funds.  When you donate stocks, mutual funds, or other types of marketable securities to a charity, you pay no capital gains tax. A tax receipt will be issued for the full amount of the gift.

For electronic transfer, please contact your broker and fill out a Securities Transfer Form.

Gift of Life Insurance:  

Life insurance is a great way to make a substantial donation for the relatively low cost of the premium payments.

  • Add Women That Give as a beneficiary to your existing life insurance policy.
  • Or you can purchase a new life insurance policy and name Women That Give as the owner and beneficiary or you can donate an existing policy to WTG.
