Honoring the Past, Empowering the Future

Is YWCA of Greater Green Bay already in your will, trust or other estate plans? Thank you! Please let us know about your intentions so we can plan for the future. Contact the YWCA Development Director (information below) and we will add your name to the Legacy Society. Your gift may remain anonymous if you wish.

Don’t have a will? You’re not alone! Now is a great time to start planning. Please consider including a bequest to the YWCA in your estate plans. Contact our Development Director (information below) for suggested estate planning experts and the YWCA’s tax ID for you to share with your attorney.

What is Planned Giving

Planned or deferred gifts allow you to make significant contributions to YWCA of Greater Green Bay without effecting your current financial situation. Planned gifts create a sustainable future for the YWCA and assure we are able to meet the needs of future generations of women and children in our community.

Ways to Give

There are many ways for you to leave a legacy, provide for the future of the YWCA and receive significant tax benefits for you and your family.


One of the simplest ways to provide an enduring gift of support to the YWCA is through your will or revocable living trust. By including the YWCA in your estate plans, you can specify that some or all of your assets come to us after your lifetime. Assets designated to the YWCA reduce the estate taxes payable.

Beneficiary Designations

You may choose to designate the YWCA as a partial or full benefit of your retirement assets or life insurance policy. Much like a bequest, you have the flexibility to change your designated beneficiaries at any time by contacting your insurance carrier or plan administrator.

Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts allow you to provide for the YWCA while receiving income for yourself and others for the remainder of your life. You may consider a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust as a way to support the YWCA.

Charitable Lead Trusts

A charitable lead trust provides an immediate gift to the YWCA while ultimately transferring assets to your loved ones-often with significantly reduced gift and estate taxes.
