Leave a legacy

Make a lasting impact with a gift to PWRDF in your will

Leaving a gift to PWRDF* allows you to leave a larger gift than would be possible during your lifetime, while still retaining control of your assets.  

A charitable gift in your will (known as a bequest) may be the biggest gift of your life and has the power to help even more communities around the world. You can leave a gift of securities, cash or even a percentage of your estate. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt that can lower or even eliminate estate taxes 

Ways you can leave a gift in your will 

  • Leave a specific dollar amount 
  • Leave a residual bequest ‒ a share of the remainder of your estate after other needs are met 
  • Leave a contingent bequest ‒ a share of your estate after your other beneficiaries have passed on 

There are many other ways to remember PWRDF in your will, including annuities, bonds, real estate, or life insurance policies which name PWRDF as a beneficiary. To receive more information about Legacy Giving please contact Manita Swati, Senior Advisor of Planned Giving and Major Gifts at [email protected] or (437) 833-6358.

PWRDF strongly recommends you seek the professional services of a lawyer, accountant or financial advisor to ensure that you consider your financial goals, review your tax situation reviewed and tailor your gift to best fit your circumstances.
