A Planned Gift is a personal and thoughtful commitment to the future. Many donors are interested in making sure their support continues after they are no longer making an annual contribution. The Tomorrow Fund is the endowment fund of United Way. It provides an effective means of ensuring your investment today will fulfill your vision for the future.
A donation to The Tomorrow Fund provides you with the opportunity to continue an annual gift in perpetuity; invest in future generations; and provide a personal long-term legacy to the community. Your gift will be invested wisely, professionally managed, and indexed to inflation to ensure the real value of the capital is maintained. The annual income generated in excess of the amount capitalized for inflation is used by United Way to support innovative and effective community initiatives in our focus areas.
For most of us, a will is a legacy to those who have shared in and enriched our lives. Your will can also reflect your thanks to the community with a gift to United Way.
Life insurance policies are an excellent way to make a substantial gift. Many donors have found they can make a major contribution without compromising their family’s financial security.
This kind of donation can be as varied as the imagination and may include works of art and other precious objects, a residence, a commercial building, land, mortgages, shares of securities and mutual funds, bonds, royalties or copyrights.
Gifts of residual interest can be made in your lifetime and be a testamentary gift of residual interest in property. By donating what will remain, you can continue using the property for life or for whatever period you choose.
