Give a Planned Gift
United Way of the Great Triangle is committed to solutions that work toward the long-term health and well-being of the Greater Triangle community. In order to ensure that the needs in our community will be met well into the future, United Way has established a planned giving program.
Through this program, investors can give lasting gifts that will continue to help those in need for years to come. Whether through a gift of stock, a bequest, life insurance beneficiary, or a charitable trust, planned gifts enable you to create a sustained impact in your community.
All donors who have made a planned gift, or who let us know that they will make a planned gift, will be included as members of the Tocqueville Legacy Society. Your planned gifts to United Way can be made in a variety of ways that will not only benefit United Way and the Greater Triangle community, but may also provide significant tax and income advantages.
