You control how the YWCA Westmoreland County uses your gift. As an added benefit, when you make a planned gift and provide us with your intent, the YWCA honors you with membership in the prestigious YWCA Legacy Circle. Some options include:

  • Bequest Leave a gift specified to our YWCA in your will.
  • Retirement Plan Assets Name our YWCA as beneficiary as part or all of your IRA or retirement plan.
  • Appreciated Property Donate securities or real estate* that you have owned for over a year and avoid capital gains tax on appreciation.
  • Life Income Plan Establish a plan that makes lifetime payments to you, your spouse, or anyone you name. The remainder will pass to our YWCA for the purpose you specify.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts Provide a retirement plan that offers maximum income and makes a deferred charitable gift to our YWCA.
  • Charitable Lead Trust Establish a charitable lead trust to make payments to our YWCA for a set period of time.
  • Life Insurance Policy Name our YWCA as beneficiary of your life insurance policy or donate a policy that you no longer need.

Join others who have chosen to make a gift in perpetuity to the YWCA Westmoreland County.

The members of the YWCA Legacy Circle are invited to the YWCA’s annual reception, where they receive a membership lapel pin, are invited to the annual President’s luncheon, and are recognized for their generous commitments.
