Planning a Legacy Gift is another way that you and your family can help support the future of your community through United Way. By contributing to the Community Impact Legacy Fund, you will be able to support positive change in Central Alberta for many years to come.

Legacy funds are invested to generate income that can be used to enhance the impact of campaign donations each year. The United Way will draw 4% from the fund each year to support Collective Impact Projects that are innovative, unique and address the root causes of social conditions in one of our priority areas – Education, Income, or Wellness. As the fund grows, so will the impact of your legacy gift.

Consider Your Options

Everyone can make a legacy gift, no matter what size or type of asset, and all gifts provide tax benefits for you or your estate. There are several ways you can include United Way of Central Alberta in your legacy planning:

  • Bequests and Wills
  • Life Insurance
  • Retirement Savings
  • Real Estate or Personal Property
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Securities or Shares
  • Residual Interest Gifts
  • A Gift in Memorandum
