Ways to Give

Make a gift through your will

A bequest is an easy way to provide for the future of YWCA. Through your will or revocable living trust, you can make a gift of a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, or a portion of what remains after other distributions have been made. We can provide sample bequest language that can be used to support YWCA’s mission through your estate. Unless designated otherwise, planned gifts are applied to the endowment and help grow this important source of reliable and flexible funding. If you have already included YWCA in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may welcome you as a member of the Council for the Future.

Life Insurance

You can make a meaningful gift to YWCA through a life insurance policy. Options include designating YWCA as the recipient of the death benefit or transferring ownership of an existing policy to YWCA.

IRA or Other Retirement Plan

Naming YWCA as a beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other type of retirement plan is a simple way to include the organization in your estate plans. All charitable distributions are tax-free and will provide ongoing support for the women and families of King and Snohomish counties.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Combine charitable giving with fixed, lifetime payments to you—or any one or two persons that you designate. Payment rates are very attractive, plus there’s a bonus at tax time: you receive an income tax charitable deduction in the year of your gift and, for a period of many years, a portion of the payments will be favorably taxed.

Charitable Remainder Trust

This arrangement features various tax benefits. Assets are transferred to a trustee of your choice. The trustee manages the assets and pays fixed or variable income to you and/or others for life or a term of up to 20 years. When the trust terminates, the remaining principle is used to benefit YWCA.
