Leave Your Legacy

Build a legacy that lasts with planned giving

Hands planting

Take a moment and reflect on all you have done to make the Racine community better and stronger through your generous support of United Way. Now imagine making a difference in your community that lasts beyond a lifetime - while costing you nothing during yours.
A planned gift to United Way of Racine County will do just that by helping you build a legacy that lasts.
Unlike campaign gifts, planned gifts are one-time gifts that are typically made from assets rather than income. They are most commonly contributed to United Way's endowment, which is a permanent fund carefully invested for growth and a dependable revenue stream year after year.

Ways to make a planned gift

  • A bequest in your will. 
  • An IRA or a 401(k) beneficiary designation to United Way of a modest percentage, which may help you save significantly on your taxes.
  • Life insurance beneficiary designation or UWLife Insurance that leverages an annual contribution.
  • Charitable trusts or annuities that pay you or your family income and provide for the future needs of our community.

*Note, these are just a few of the ways to give a planned gift. Contact Tracie Feest for more options at 262-898-2242.
