Planned Giving

Leave a Legacy

People from all walks of life and income levels can leave a legacy in their community through a bequest or other form of planned giving. As a valued supporter of United Way, we appreciate your desire to make a difference even more than the size of your gift. It takes just one person to transform a life.

Planned giving allows you to positively impact lives based on the causes most important to you. A bequest to United Way may significantly reduce the inheritance tax burden on your heirs. Please consult a financial planner or attorney to determine whether your family might benefit from this type of gift.

Your gift of any amount helps ensure every child in our community succeeds; families have food on their table and are financially stable—for generations to come.

If you have already included United Way in your will or living trust, please tell us about your Legacy Gift so we can express our thanks. Learn more about various ways to leave your legacy by visiting contacting Nick Lynch at or at 517-203-5025.

Thank you for creating a legacy of support for our community.
