WAYS TO GIVE

There are many ways that you can give through non-cash assets while also benefiting from the tax-deductible gift to YWCA Spokane. Non-cash assets may include CDs, stock, real estate, life insurance, retirement accounts, art, and other collectibles.

MAKE A GIFT THROUGH YOUR WILL

A bequest is a simple 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 YWCA Spokane Forever Fund, an 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 our Legacy Circle.

Plan Your Beneficiaries

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 those experiencing crisis in our community.
