Young Women Empowered

Planned Giving at Y-WE

Include Young Women Empowered in your charitable giving plans,
and make a difference for years to come.

You can transform the future of women’s leadership by investing in Y-WE through a variety of planned giving options. We’re pleased to share the following ways you can make an impact. As with any major commitment, please consult with your financial advisor/attorney on which planned giving opportunities are best for you.

Estate Plan Gifts & Bequests

Did you know you can name Y-WE as a beneficiary of your will, trust, and life insurance policy? These are among the deeply meaningful ways to support and sustain our organization long into the future through planned giving.

Will & Estate PlansWhile retaining control of your assets during your lifetime, remembering Y-WE with a bequest from your estate will have a profound impact on our future and your legacy. You can make a bequest to Y-WE by including language in your will or living trust that leaves a portion of your estate to our organization.

Life Insurance PolicySupporting Y-WE with a gift made through your life insurance is a wonderful way to make a meaningful impact. This can be as simple as updating the beneficiary designation form with your policy holder to include Young Women Empowered. Additionally, you can list us as a contingent beneficiary to ensure we only receive a gift from your policy if you’ve survived your primary beneficiary.

If you’ve included Y-WE in your estate plans, please let us know by filling out our 2018 Y-WE Planned Giving Intent Form. We’d be honored to highlight your generosity and ensure we understand the full nature of your gift. 

Gifts of Stock

In addition to greatly benefitting Y-WE, making a gift of publicly-traded stock may also provide you with meaningful tax benefits. By donating a gift of stock, you’ll avoid the capital gains taxes you’d otherwise incur by selling your stock and ensure that we receive the full value of your assets.

Please contact jessica@y-we.org to let us know if you’d like to make a gift of stock and we’ll send you–or your broker–our stock transfer information right away. We will promptly acknowledge your gift and provide you with a tax receipt upon the transfer.

To connect further, contact Jessica Agi (Y-WE’s Development Director) at 206-724-4776 or jessica@y-we.org.

We’re deeply grateful for your generosity.
